Stand Up Science

Award-winning stand-up comedian and science podcast host Shane Mauss presents Stand Up Science! 

Learn and laugh as local scientists, comedians and other special guests join Shane to bring you a one-of-a-kind show that is equal parts ahas and hahas

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 stigma of being overly complicated, unrelatable or boring.  Until now.

Funnier and more provocative than TED Talks, while smarter than traditional stand-up comedy, Stand Up Science combines the best of both worlds.  This thought-provoking night of laughs will leave you a little smarter, a little happier and send you home with plenty of fuel for your own conversations. 

What to Expect: 

As your host, Shane kicks the evening off with some of his best material on brainy topics, before introducing special guest speakers and performers.  Guests range from Ivy League professors presenting groundbreaking academic research to local stand-up comedians delivering their most cerebral material. 

At the end of the night, Shane brings all the guests back onstage and opens the floor for a Q&A and interactive discussion with the audience.

“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
