Uneven, Disappointing, Fluffy, Entertaining, Indulgent

See it if You’re an Alton Brown fan. His schtick is funny enough, intelligent, interesting. His personal stories are best. His comedy bits fall flat.

Don't see it if You don’t know or don’t like Alton Brown. He holds court as if he were a rock star and to most of the audience he is. Read more

Ambitious, Clever, Entertaining, Great staging, Refreshing

See it if You are a huge Alton Brown fan. You want something totally different from other shows. You enjoy watching scientific experimentation.

Don't see it if You don't like a variety style show including audience participation that includes some corny comedy. This is in no way a play.

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Hilarious, Remarkable

See it if multitalented Brown entertains as well as informs in a live version of his TV programs; ability to react to audience members is key

Don't see it if Audience participants were great/good for my performance; a bad choice might end up as a bad segment

Funny, Intelligent, Entertaining

See it if You like science. Definitely not a cooking show.

Don't see it if You are expecting a lot of science, really only 2 major "experiments." The rest of the time was spent telling jokes and singing.

Clever, Entertaining, Fun

See it if you're a fan of Alton. Food science, music and Alton's brand of humor. This is a traveling food science show. Informative and fun.

Don't see it if you are expecting to see a storybook show. Don't expect Broadway. You really need to want to see Alton do his thing. Read more

The New York Times
November 24th, 2016

"This one-man variety show combines cooking lore with physics, chemistry, comedy and a live band...His persona is part nerd and part gentleman, part mastermind and part bro...Yes, the show is wildly indulgent. It is also a hoot...If Mr. Brown could move through the material faster, he could offer more of the gonzo experiments and lightly barbed interactions he excels at. His work with audience volunteers is dexterous and mischievous, mean without ever being exactly cruel."
