Since they both change our perceptions of the world, standup comedy and science have plenty in common. That’s something that comedian Shane Mauss exploits with his podcast Here We Are.

Recently, Mauss announced tour dates, and he’ll perform on Jan. 23 at Hilarities.



The show won’t be your typical standup comedy concert.

Mauss will start the night with a set on “brainy topics” and then hand the stage over to his guests. At the end of the night, Mauss will bring the guests back onstage and host a Q&A and interactive discussion.



Guests for the Hilarities show include Jeremy Genovese, Liz Blanc and Andrew B. Slifkin. An Associate Professor of Human Development and Educational Psychology at Cleveland State University, Genovese specializes in things like cognitive evolution, the Flynn Effect, memory improvement, behavioral learning theory, evolutionary psychology, the psychology of belief, and the cognitive effects of meditation and yoga.

A local comedian, Blanc has performed all over the Midwest.

Slifkin is currently an associate professor in the Department of Psychology at Cleveland State University where he studies understanding motor control processes in health and in disease (e.g., Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis).

The show begins at 7:30 p.m., and tickets start at $15.
