Have you ever been to StarTalk Live! What are you doing Monday night?

If you’ve never attended a StarTalk Live! show, you’ve been missing out on a unique experience.

Think of it. An entire theatre filled with people who are there because they are into science. – just like you. A stage filled with people who are only there because they’re smart, or they’re funny – or sometimes, both. All hosted by your own personal astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson. Sometimes guest hosted by Bill Nye. (And every once in a while, if you’re really lucky, you get them both.)

What’s the topic? It’s a surprise. Who are the guests? They’re a surprise, too. But you know what’s not going to be a surprise?

That everyone who shows up at the Beacon Theatre Monday night is in for an awesome evening of science, comedy and pop culture.

Live at the Bellhouse in Brooklyn, NY

And no, for those of you who were just about to ask, this show won’t be live-streamed. We will, however, be recording it for future podcasts and videos, so if you’re half way across the world and lamenting not being in NYC right now, all is not lost.
