Audiences are engaged and enthusiastic test subjects, as they spend two hours laughing, learning and exploring during a theatrical experience like no other.
Every night, Savage and Stevens literally can’t wait to unleash their collective sense of wonder, curiosity and fun for each new audience. They’re inviting everyone to join-in and get their minds messy as their demonstrations leap off the stage. Adam and Michael’s BRAIN CANDY LIVE!
Smart is the new superpower and two of this planet’s most entertaining everyday heroes are coming here to rescue you and your family from boredom!
About Adam Savage
One of the most highly regarded and watched series on Discovery Channel, “MythBusters” ran for 14 earth-shattering years. Co-executive produced and Co-hosted by Savage, the show mixed scientific method with problem solving gleeful curiosity and plain old-fashioned ingenuity to confirm or bust myths, popular misconceptions and creating its own signature style of explosive experimentation. Today, in addition to creating content for his website tested.com Adam has become a proponent for making, working with the White House to encourage kids and adults alike to get their hands dirty. He’s also a regular at conventions across the US, where his elaborate and handmade costumes (such as Totoro at New York Comic Con) attract much attention … and hugs.
