You’re The Expert
You’re the Expert bridges the worlds of comedy and academia, attracting a comedy audience while providing them with meaningful content. Each show features an expert in a somewhat obscure field. A group of hilarious comedians try to guess what in the world our expert studies all day long. Afterwards, the expert dissects how wildly wrong (or right) the ideas about her field were. The show ends with an interview where we find out what our expert does and why their field is important. It’s funny, it’s interactive, and you end up actually learning something.
Comedian Myq Kaplan from NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” tries to guess what a Tufts professor studies all day at the next show. This event is presented by the WBUR iLab. Funding for the WBUR iLab is provided by Biogen Idec.
