Stand Up Science with Shane Mauss presented by Just Comedy
COMEDIANS + SCIENTISTS =
STAND UP SCIENCE
Presented by comedian and science podcaster Shane Mauss
With a little help from Just Comedy
Learn and laugh as scientists and comedians come together on stage to bring you a one-of-a-kind two-hour show that is equal parts ahas and hahas!

What to Expect:
In each city, host Shane Mauss kicks the evening off with some of his best material on brainy topics before introducing two local scientists to give short presentations about their most interesting research.  Between each talk a second comic in each city will perform their most cerebral material.  All with the help of your host riffing after each guest.
At the end of the night, Shane brings all the guests back onstage and opens the floor for a Q&A so the audience gets a chance to be a part of the show.

About the host and the origins of Stand Up Science:
Shane Mauss leads two lives.
Originally from Wisconsin, Shane now tours the world full-time as an award-winning stand-up comedian. Shane has brought his unique blend of absurdist humor, thoughtful insights and storytelling to cities all over the world, as well as TV spots on Conan, Kimmel, Comedy Central, Showtime, BBC, and Epix.
Shanes unique background, comedy, and personal philosophies have also made him a popular guest on other top podcasts like Pete Holmes You Made It Weird, Marc Marons WTF, The Joe Rogan Experience, Duncan Trussells Family Hour, Bertcast and more.  
Halfway through his career, this former factory worker who skipped college to pursue comedy decided to follow his curiosities and start the science podcast Here We Are.  Hes now interviewed roughly 300 leading scientists about our most fascinating traits and behaviors while finding the funny in the innermost workings of life. Each week Shane illuminates a new area of research for the shows 50,000 loyal listeners, earning a 5-star rating on iTunes.
Now on a mission to present science and big ideas in a fun and accessible way, hes asked his new scientist friends to join him live on stage!

The perfect blend
Stand-up comedy and science have a lot in common.  They both reveal truth, change our perceptions, and challenge the status quo.  So why are they so underappreciated?
Admittedly, comedy sometimes underestimates the intelligence of their audience, catering to the lowest common denominator. And science has the unfair stigma of being overly complicated, unrelatable or boring.  But they both just need the right platform to shine.

Having now made over 100 stops on this tour, Shane books all different guests and topics making each show fun, unique and unpredictable.  This thought-provoking night of ideas and jokes will leave you a little smarter, a little happier and send you home with plenty of fuel for your own conversations.

Past reviews:
Mauss is intelligent, likable and sharp  VICE Magazine
Mauss has clearly found a popular niche in his natural fascination with the human mind. However, attendees should be forewarned: The show is still going to kill you with laughter.  Austin Chronicle
"Experience with a variety of comedic techniques and interactions with renown science experts have molded Mauss into a well-rounded and imaginative performer. Mauss strives to perform thematic, laugh-out-loud comedy, interjecting science in bold, innovative ways."  EU Jacksonville
