Schmahl Science Workshops Fundraiser

Sat­ur­day, Novem­ber 6, 2010.  I’m per­form­ing at a fundrais­er for a very worth­while cause – Schmahl Sci­ence Work­shops offers an after-school career men­tor­ship pro­gram that enables pre-K through 12 stu­dents to par­tic­i­pate in on-going sci­ence and engi­neer­ing research pro­grams.

16th Anniver­sary Cel­e­bra­tion and Fundrais­er:  “The Sci­ence of Suc­cess”

Food, wine, live enter­tain­ment (that’s me!)

More info on Schmahl Sci­ence Work­shops:

The Bay Area is home to sig­nif­i­cant inno­va­tion in sci­ence and tech­nol­o­gy.  How­ev­er many local school dis­tricts have elim­i­nat­ed sci­ence edu­ca­tion from their cur­ricu­lum. The key is more Sci­ence, Tech­nol­o­gy, Engi­neer­ing, and Math (STEM) edu­cat­ed grad­u­ates if we want to con­tin­ue to be lead­ers in the glob­al econ­o­my. By part­ner­ing with schools, insti­tu­tions of high­er edu­ca­tion, sci­ence based insti­tu­tions, muse­ums, local gov­ern­ments, and the busi­ness com­mu­ni­ty our non-profit, Schmahl Sci­ence Work­shops (SSW) devel­ops young sci­en­tists to par­tic­i­pate in the next wave of sci­en­tific inno­va­tion. We need your help to keep Schmahl Sci­ence Work­shop strong.  We invite you to join us to cel­e­brate the accom­plish­ments of our stu­dents and to learn more about how you can inspire the next gen­er­a­tion of sci­en­tists.

Green Vanity License Plates

I’ve been per­form­ing stand up com­e­dy for two decades. I get all the stage time I need.  But I real­ize not every­one has such an out­let. And, yet, humans are such com­pli­cat­ed, emo­tion­al crea­tures.  They have so much to express!

That’s why I’ve always been fas­ci­nat­ed with van­i­ty plates and bumper stick­ers.  And I’ve always lumped them in with answer­ing machine out­go­ing mes­sages and Karaoke.  I think, for some peo­ple, the­se might be the only out­lets they have through which to express them­selves to the world.  They have so much to say – and so lit­tle space!  But humans are cre­ative.

And humans that dri­ve the Toy­ota Prius Hybrid Vehi­cle in the San Fran­cis­co Bay Area…  well, they are par­tic­u­lar­ly cre­ative.  And con­sis­tent with their mes­sage.  I keep see­ing hybrids with green-themed van­i­ty plates.  Not every one below is a Prius, but most of them are.

Have you seen any oth­er van­i­ty plates with envi­ron­men­tal themes or mes­sages?  Let me know!

Science Comedian on BoingBoing

I’m on Boing­Bo­ing!

Mag­gie Koerth-Baker post­ed a YouTube clip of me this morn­ing.  It’s an excerpt from my per­for­mance two weeks ago at Won­der­fest, the Bay Area sci­ence fes­ti­val.

The entire fes­ti­val was video­taped by Fora.tv.  You can see the rest of my 15-minute per­for­mance here.

Also, a dia­logue I mod­er­at­ed enti­tled Do Robots Make Bet­ter Astro­nauts? (fea­tur­ing Chris McK­ay of NASA Ames and Kan­na Rajan of the Mon­terey Bay Aquar­i­um Research Insti­tute).

If you’re visiting from BoingBoing… Welcome!

It’s odd to be judged just by the­se admit­ted­ly – pur­pose­ly – corny bar jokes.  They aren’t exact­ly rep­re­sen­ta­tive of my entire act.  They were the sil­ly end to my pre­sen­ta­tion.

And they also cut the rou­tine short – there are a few more, includ­ing the final bar joke which is arguably the best one….  about Heli­um.

Check out the rest of that per­for­mance or see my oth­er YouTube clips:  www.youtube.com/sciencecomedian .  Sub­scribe!

I’m @sciencecomedian on Twit­ter.  Fol­low me!

And check out the sci­ence videos I’ve been mak­ing for Time Magazine’s web­site.

Thank you, good­night!

Science Comedian on Public Radio

Roman Mars of KALW, a San Fran­cis­co pub­lic radio sta­tion, pro­duced a piece on me that aired yes­ter­day on the show Cross Cur­rents:

“The Bay Area is home to some of the smartest peo­ple on the plan­et. So, it makes sense that our brainy nature would demand the occa­sion­al brainy enter­tain­ment. That’s where Bri­an Mal­ow, the sci­ence come­di­an, comes in. Mal­ow stopped by KALW to tell Roman Mars why he thinks sci­ence is so fun­ny.”

If you have five min­utes, you can hear the seg­ment on their web­site:
Bri­an Mal­ow, the Sci­ence Come­di­an.

My thanks to Hol­ly Ker­nan and Roman Mars of KALW

Cross Cur­rents airs at 5pm (Paci­fic), on FM 91.7, and streams live from the KALW web­site.
