AoT NYC’s own DJ Carly Sagan (billed as mild-mannered astronomy Emily Rice) will be performing at the SciArt Center of New York‘s INTRO TO SCICOMEDYOLOGY held at Under St. Marks Theater, December 1st, 8pm! Tickets are $5.
From SciArt Center:
A chemist, an RNA biologist, a physicist, a neuroscientist, and an astronomer walk into a bar…
Want to know how this one ends? Join SciArt Center for its first-ever science-comedy night, ‘INTRO TO SCICOMEDYOLOGY’!
We’re bringing in five hilarious and brilliant scientists to talk candidly about their work, and we’re throwing in comedian
Ahri Findling (http://www.theycallmeahri.com/) to make things even more interesting.
