Food lovers rejoice! The mad scientist of the kitchen is back in 2016 with his new Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science tour, where once again he serves up a winning combination of comedy, live talk show skits,his colorful multimedia presentations and music (remember how this dude sings?!). Only this time, Brown adds brand-new fresh elemts to the show that includes new puppets, songs, and of course, outrageously dangerous experiments in the kitchen (that you are in no way recommended to do yourself). It's bigger, better and crazier before - all hail Alton!
