Intellectual rapper Baba Brinkman and neuroscientist Dr. Heather Berlin explore the brain basis of improvisation and humor in this live comedy show featuring cutting-edge research and freestyle rhymes. More…
Married in real life, Brinkman and Berlin bring you the latest research on brain science and creativity while putting their odd-couple relationship under the microscope. Learn how a rapper seduces a scientist, how hard it is to solve a math problem while rapping, and how your subconscious mind influences your daily thoughts and feelings.
See it if Boy rapper marries girl neuroscientist. They perform a weekly act that is half brain science, half comedy. The smart babe is hot stuff.
Don't see it if You want a work of fiction. This is closer to a standup comedy act than a theater piece.
See it if You want science facts in a casual setting. You're a fan of Baba Brinkman & want to see all his shows.
Don't see it if You're expecting a theatrical event: it's an improv-ed science lecture w/out a story structure. You want Baba's rap format: not much here.
See it if you like to learn a few new things, think science is fascinating and the brain more so, you like a casual lounge atmosphere, are a Baba fan.
Don't see it if You don't like rap, think science is boring, don't like seeing a real-life couple perform together. It goes on too long, is uneven, but OK.
See it if you like rap as a means to communicate ideas, audience participation, real life husband & wife performances & want to learn about the brain.
Don't see it if This isn't a play, it's more of a lecture with rap, and it's in a small bar with tables and chairs. Adjust your expectations accordingly.
See it if you enjoy watching brain games and like rap improv even when the quality is uneven.
Don't see it if you have already heard enough lectures about how the brain works and find stories about how a couple fell in love boring.
See it if You want a fun, intimate, brilliant night of theatre with a brain stimulating twist!
Don't see it if If you want to see typical plays or musicals. This is out of the box. Oh go on ...step outside the box....!!!
See it if you are interested in Neuroscience and Rapping. I have seen Baba perform before, and this wasn't as fun of a show as in the past.
Don't see it if you don't want to feel as if you are in a lecture. This was part rap, part lecture part stand up comedy show.
See it if you want a fun show. Hard core neuroscience interposed with wrap music is an unexpected combination. A light, jovial, evening.
Don't see it if like wrap music or learning about the brain.
See it if you like brainiac entertainment. It's a neuroscience variety show. Rap, comedy, science talk rolled into one.
Don't see it if science and nerdy subjects aren't too your liking. It's enjoyable but very intellectual.
See it if You're interested in catching more of a lecture (on the brain) than traditional show. U will learn tho-& come away w/some insightful facts~
Don't see it if You're looking for a play, not a comedy/rap/lecture-or the topic would bore you. Needs to be tightened & directed to get more out of show~
See it if you want to see an interesting TED RAP talk work in progress with a less than interesting comedian and you've had a few drinks from the bar
Don't see it if you are expecting theater or actors who can use the microphone properly or you have no interest in the effects of rap on the brain.
See it if you're interested in neuroscience explained well and interspersed with comedy and freestyle. I learned a lot. Love between leads is adorable
Don't see it if you don't like: white guy rap, dark basements, self-deprecating humor relying in part on competent woman less competent man tropes.
See it if You are interested in neuro-science. This is more informative than pure entertainment.
Don't see it if You want an actual show. This is more like a very good and entertaining lecture.
See it if Very educational. The professor is brilliant and gives an informative and fun lecture. The husband just distracts from the show.
Don't see it if You don't like educational lectures. Don't like audience participation
See it if you like science lectures, want to see an "odd couple" in real life, or want to test your multi-tasking in public (1-2 people can do this).
Don't see it if you are looking for a tight show, a plot, or huge scientific insights (there are some, just mostly at the beginning).
See it if You like rap and/or comedy and are interest in the science of how they are created. You like the idea of a science-rap-comedy hybrid "show."
Don't see it if You are expecting a play or theatrical show. This is more of a science-conference seminar with some rap and comedy tossed in.
See it if You like rap and are interested in the brain. Or if you like either one or the other. The show is pretty brilliant.
Don't see it if You're expecting a huge show with great staging. It's just two people in a basement bar. But it's a great show, so don't miss out on it!
See it if you have an amateur interest in either science or rap music and want to be both educated and entertained. It's an inclusive, intimate show.
Don't see it if you like a more polished, professional show, or if you're an easily bored expert in science or rap. Also, audience volunteer quality varies.
See it if you love neuroscience and/or rap music and would be interested in seeing the two combined.
Don't see it if you don't enjoy learning about the brain or listening to freestyle rap.
See it if you are interested in seeing a performance about how the brain works that is part lecture, part rap, and part stand-up comedy.
Don't see it if you are not a fan of rap music and are not interested in neuroscience or learning about the brain.
