Science Comedian – the Heat in Arizona

I had a fantastic time performing at the Sacramento Comedy Spot this past Friday.  We had a packed house in an intimate room – and they were just the perfect science-loving crowd.  Or, I should say, science-comedy-loving crowd.

The opening act was the hilariously geeky Nick Pettigrew (link is to a previous set of his), and I did a whopping hour and forty minutes, including some Q&A.  I’ll be putting more clips online soon.  Here’s the first.

My fever-dream inspired by the unbearable heat of an Arizona summer.  Some might fantasize of bikinis and water sports; I can only imagine global devastation, mutation, human extinction…

Good Day, Sacramento!

This past Friday, I performed at the Sacramento Comedy Spot (in , uh, Sacramento, CA).  To promote the show, I made an early morning appearance on a local TV show, “Good Day, Sacramento.”

I said, “Good day!”

We talked about science and comedy and insect photography.  They even pulled up my photo blog:  InsectPaparazzi.com .

Wonderfest

Sunday, November 7, 2010. Once again I am thrilled to be performing at Wonderfest – the Bay Area’s long-running festival of science.  This is their 12th annual event – and my third time participating.

As always, it’s a 2-day event – Saturday on the Stanford campus and Sunday on the Berkeley campus.

I am only attending Sunday, November 7, at UC Berkeley’s Stanley Hall.  I will perform and then moderate a dialogue:

3pm:  Science Laughs with Science Comedian Brian Malow

4pm:  Moderator for  “Do We Understand the Structure of the Universe?” – a dialogue between Lloyd Knox, a physics professor from UC Davis, and Chung-Pei Ma, an astronomy prof from Berkeley

And, in between my two slots, you can enjoy a live podcast of “This Week in Science” with my friends Dr.Kiki and Justin!
