WHY IT'S A PICK
Enjoy a night of sheer nerd joy and what's left of science and comedy collide in Brooklyn!

ABOUT THE SHOW - FROM THE PRODUCER
WE'RE GOING ALL IN THIS YR TO CELEBRATE THE END OF SCIENCE

The Educated Guess is back for another year with more quirky dioramas, tri-fold cardboard, and haphazard experiments than ever. Produced by comedians Steven DeSiena and Jo Firestone, Educated Guess challenges 60+ of NYC's top comedians to throw-back to grade school science fairs complete with half-baked hypotheses. Join us at 7 witness the transformation of littlefield into a middle school gym, and stick around for the comedy show that will really make you think, maybe? Definitely. Probably. 

Check out the show Vice calls "pure comedy magic" and scientists call "false".

Get tickets early and pay less money! It only makes sense!
