Fans of Brown's previous live stage shows can expect a return of his brand of comedy, talk-show antics, multimedia presentations, and music. But 'Eat Your Science' adds a slew of fresh ingredients including new puppets, songs, and bigger and potentially more dangerous experiments. Brown's family-friendly performances also feature numerous interactive elements which allow audience members to get in on the action.

The New York Times

"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." Full Review
