Adam Savage and Michael Stevens have put their brilliant minds together to create a show that displays mind-boggling demonstrations and showcases fascinating gadgets. Their Brain Candy Live tour stops by Newark at NJPAC on February 26th.
The show aims to answer amusing scientific questions like “Can you slow down the effects of gravity with something we throw away every day?” while bringing over three tons of gadgets to interact with the audience. You probably know Adam Savage from watching Mythbusters on the Discovery Channel, where he and his co-host Jamie Hyneman, along with their team, tested hundreds of scientific myths. His playful personality, along with his years of experience in set design and special effects, drew millions of viewers to the show.
After a successful 15-year run on Mythbusters, Mr. Savage has transitioned into making videos on YouTube, where his “Tested” channel has over 2.5 million subscribers and his videos routinely reach hundreds of thousands of views each. He is seen building props and gadgets and offering his expert opinion on various topics through his Still Untitled: The Adam Savage Project video podcast.
Michael Stevens started his wildly successful “Vsauce” channel in 2010 which now has over 11.5 million subscribers, and has spun off two channels each with 3 million plus subscribers. Michael is known for his thought-provoking videos that focus on discussing scientific and philosophical questions such as what would happen if everyone jumped at once and “What if the Sun disappeared?” Many viewers enjoy watching Michael and his videos because of his enthusiastic personality and his willingness to tackle complex, and many times educational, concepts.
Together, Adam Savage and Michael Stevens form a dynamic duo that aim to engage their audience and fans through physically performing for them. Tickets and more information can be found at njpac.org as well as braincandylive.com
