Nothing Academic: A Night of Science-Themed Improv

April 24, 2017

The Comedy Clubhouse
1462 North Ashland Avenue, Chicago, IL, United States


What happens when improv comedians try to tackle the world of science?

Come find out at The Comedy Clubhouse on Monday April 24, when three teams of comedians will take a single scientifically-themed suggestion from the audience and improvise three completely different comedic performances. You’ve never seen a science presentation like this before! If you enjoy learning about science, or if you are a scientist wanting to learn how to connect more personally and spontaneously with an audience, this is a can’t-miss show!

C2ST Artist-in-Residence Aaron Freeman will introduce the show.

This event is sponsored by the American Society for Biochemistry and Microbiology’s (ASBMB) Public Outreach Committee, as part of their 2017 Annual Meeting at McCormick Place Chicago, and presented in partnership with C2ST.
