St. Petersburg, Fla. (Oct. 24, 2016) – The Mahaffey is thrilled to announce the new live show BRAIN CANDY LIVE!, starring Adam Savage, editor-in-chief of Tested.com and former co-host of the Emmy-nominated Discovery series MythBusters, and Michael Stevens, creator of the award-winning YouTube Channel “Vsauce,” Wednesday, March 15 at 7:30 p.m.
BRAIN CANDY LIVE! is an outrageous evening of entertainment from two of the most amazing minds of our times. Adam Savage, one of television’s most loved personalities, has joined forces with Michael Stevens, one of YouTube’s biggest stars. Together, the two are bringing along more than three tons of their crazy toys, incredible tools and mind-blowing demonstrations for a celebration of curiosity that’s been described as “A cross between TED Talks and the Blue Man Group.”
Savage and Stevens can’t wait to unleash their collective sense of wonder, curiosity and fun for audiences to join in and get their minds messy. Adam and Michael’s BRAIN CANDY LIVE! experience is like a two-hour play date with Walt Disney, Willy Wonka and Albert Einstein.
Ask yourself, “Is it possible to 3D print a human – live onstage?” “Can you slow down the effects of gravity with something we throw away every day?” “What happens if everyone on earth jumps in the air at exactly the same time?” Discover all this and more as Adam and Michael entertainingly answer questions, question answers and talk Mother Nature into doing some things she’s never done before!
