Ben Miller's Stand-Up Science

A show that's equal measures hilarious, educational, and deeply personal. Scientist turned stand-up comedian Ben Miller takes you on a journey that explores everything from chairs to the thermodynamics of refrigerators with a wit and humor that makes these topics both approachable and delightful. And you probably like that sort of thing, nerd. Come see this show after its completely sold-out run at the 2022 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Ben Miller is an NYC based comedian who has been working for the past 6 years and in that time he's performed at all the top clubs in the city such as Broadway Comedy Club, Stand Up NY, Dangerfield's, Carolines, and The Stand. He's currently ranked as the top roast battler in NYC. He also has a degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Columbia University. He's worked with electron microscopes, been a teacher on a science bus, 3D printed cookies, and diffused a few bar fights while on stage.

If you don't believe him that the show is good, here are some reviews from the greatest minds of our time:

Isaac Newton: "This guy will make you fall out of your seat and accelerate at 9.8 m/s downward with laughter. But what do I know, I've experienced repeated fruit-based head trauma."

Stephen Hawking: "Ben Miller put me in that wheelchair and honestly I'm grateful."

Marie Curie: "He just radiates funny. The show really grows on you like a cancerous tumor from radiation poisoning."

Albert Einstein: "I'd let him f*ck my wife."
