StarTalk Live! and other StarTalk Events

The StarTalk experience is brought to life onstage at StarTalk Live!, the road show that’s entertaining and educating sold-out audiences around the country, in premier venues like New York City’s historic Beacon Theatre and popular festivals like SF Sketchfest. StarTalk Live! performances are hosted by either Neil deGrasse Tyson or Bill Nye the Science Guy (or, on rare occasions, special guest hosts like Charles Liu or other scientists or astronauts) and are co-hosted by comedian Eugene Mirman (or other special guest co-hosts). StarTalk Live! is co-produced by Curved Light Productions and Pretty Good Friends.

On occasion, we also record episodes of the StarTalk Radio, StarTalk All-Stars, and StarTalk Playing with Science podcasts in front of an audience at events like SXSW, Comic Con, the Now Hear This festival and Worlds Fair Nano. Please note that these are not StarTalk Live! events, and will be listed separately below.

StarTalk Presents: Science All Stars at Caveat

Join us for our very first appearance at CAVEAT, New York’s newest speakeasy stage for playful, intelligent nightlife. StarTalk All-Stars host Natalia Reagan and comic co-host Harrison Greenbaum and their special guests will be exploring the idea of interstellar space travel, living on a space ship, and colonizing an exoplanet. Come with us on a scientific yet comedic deep dive into the psychological, astronomical, and medical challenges of an interstellar journey to colonize a new planet. We’ll explore questions like:
Which planets could we look to colonize? What will it be like to live with the same people in a tiny spaceship for the rest of your life? Can we freeze ourselves on a spaceship for thousands of years and wake up on a new world?
