FORA.tv has a short video of me performing at the recent Wonderfest science festival in Berkeley. I’m talking about bad science in science fiction movies, and the example in the clip is a classic moment from Star Wars…

Sunday, November 7, 2010. Once again I am thrilled to be performing at Wonderfest – the Bay Area’s long-running festival of science. This is their 12th annual event – and my third time participating.
As always, it’s a 2-day event – Saturday on the Stanford campus and Sunday on the Berkeley campus.
I am only attending Sunday, November 7, at UC Berkeley’s Stanley Hall. I will perform and then moderate a dialogue:
3pm: Science Laughs with Science Comedian Brian Malow
4pm: Moderator for “Do We Understand the Structure of the Universe?” – a dialogue between Lloyd Knox, a physics professor from UC Davis, and Chung-Pei Ma, an astronomy prof from Berkeley
And, in between my two slots, you can enjoy a live podcast of “This Week in Science” with my friends Dr.Kiki and Justin!

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.

Thank you, goodnight!
