host and beloved dork avatar Adam Savage is hitting the road with his new partner in experimentation, Internet personality Michael Stevens (known to his 11.7 million YouTube subscribers as Vsause) for Brain Candy LIVE
, and we’re pretty sure stuff’s gonna blow up. The brilliant dweebs have got a few big old grown-up toys that will crush and create and make marvelous spectacles of science right before your very eyes. As imaginative as Walt Disney, wacky as Willy Wonka and cerebral as Albert Einstein, this unique two-hour comedy-lecture hybrid offers the opportunity to potentially get onstage with the duo and assist in the madness. This family-friendly romp is not without its dangers – if you’re squeamish, you might want to steer clear of the splash zone up front.
8 p.m. Thursday. Cullen Performance Hall, 4300 University. For information, call 1-800-745-3000 or visit uh.edu/cullen-performance-hall
. $40 to $65.
