ALTON BROWN LIVE - EAT YOUR SCIENCE <p>Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science" the follow-up to the smash "Edible Inevitable" tour, will hit the road in 2016. Fans can expect more comedy, talk show antics, multimedia presentations and music (yes, he sings), but Brown is adding a slew of fresh ingredients including new puppets, songs and bigger and potentially more dangerous experiments. Brown has a knack for mixing together a perfect base of science, music and food into two hours of pure entertainment. Critics and fans rave about the interactive fun when Brown invites an audience member on stage to serve as his assistant. According to Alton, "there will be plenty of new therapy inducing opportunities during our audience participation segments. I don't want to give too much away, but we're also going to play a little game with the audience," says Brown.</p> <p> </p> America/North_Dakota/Center
