Famous MythBuster Adam Savage + SF SketchFest = Weird Science Comedy at CalAcademy’s NightLife This Thursday

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

Our California Academy of Sciences is bringing it this once again, this Thursday night, August 18th from 6:00 to 10:00 PM – it’s Comedy NightLife!

All the deets:

“Comedy NightLife with SF Sketchfest

Get ready to laugh your wrasse off (as in cleaner wrasse – you know, the cute little symbiotic fish that nibbles parasites off its neighbors)! This week, NightLife partners with SF Sketchfest for a night of “weird science” comedy with an 80s twist, featuring festival favorites Adam Savage of MythBusters, Chris Hardwick of Web Soup and the Nerdist podcast, Kasper Hauser, Brian Malow, Joe Klocek, Alex Koll, Emily Heller, Edwin Li, Dave Thomason and Casey Ley; newcomers Veronica Belmont, Dhaya Lakshminarayanan, Nina G.; and more. Think stand-up, sketch, storytelling, conversation and trivia, all blended into one stellar night. DJs Skip and Shindog from New Wave City, organizers of the city’s top 80s dance party, will be spinning in the east pavilion, while Eli Glad  and Sleazemore bring their electro sounds to the coral reef. The planetarium will feature a tour of the universe during Science Tonight: LIVE @ 6:30, followed by two showings of Life: A Cosmic Story.
