Mayo Presents Brain Candy Live!

(MORRISTOWN, NJ) -- Brain Candy Live!, starring Adam Savage, editor-in-chief of tested.com and former co-host of the Emmy-nominated Discovery series "MythBusters," and Michael Stevens, creator of award-winning YouTube Channel "Vsauce" brings its mind-blowing show to Mayo Performing Arts Center on Thursday, November 16 at 7:00pm. Tickets range from $49-$150.

Adam Savage and Michael Stevens have joined forces to bring this one of a kind interactive, hands-on, minds-on theatrical experience to cities across the U.S.  They're master explainers, bringing along their crazy toys, incredible tools and mind-blowing demonstrations for a celebration of curiosity that literally has audiences shouting "more" after their favorites.  Audiences are engaged and enthusiastic test subjects and participants as they spend two hours laughing, learning and exploring during a theatrical experience like no other.

Savage and Stevens literally can't wait to unleash their collective sense of wonder, curiosity and fun for each new audience.  They're inviting everyone to join-in and get their minds messy as their demonstrations leap off the stage. Adam and Michael's BRAIN CANDY LIVE!  experience is like a two-hour play date with Walt Disney, Willy Wonka and Albert Einstein.  

Smart is the new superpower and two of this planet's most entertaining everyday heroes are coming to your town to rescue you and your family from boredom. Join them as they use their secret recipe of fun, surprise, excitement (and just a pinch of danger) to cook-up and deliver an explosive batch of magical Brain Candy to every mind in the audience.

About Adam Savage

One of the most highly regarded and watched series on Discovery Channel, "MythBusters" ran for 14 earth-shattering years. Co-executive produced and Co-hosted by Savage, the show mixed scientific method with problem solving gleeful curiosity and plain old-fashioned ingenuity to confirm or bust myths, popular misconceptions and creating its own signature style of explosive experimentation. Today, in addition to creating content for his website http://www.tested.com/, Adam has become a proponent for making, working with the White House to encourage kids and adults alike to get their hands dirty. He's also a regular at conventions across the country, where his elaborate and handmade costumes (such as Totoro at New York Comic Con) attract much attention ... and hugs.

About Michael Stevens

Michaels' passion for learning, science and making curiosity contagious led him to create Vsauce in 2010. The YouTube channel captures attention with fun questions like, "What Color Is A Mirror?" "Can You Count Past Infinity?" and "Why Are Things Creepy?" Now reaching a collective 17 million subscribers with video views in excess of 2 billion, Vsauce has grown into one of the largest educational networks on the web. Last year, it received the Webby for Best Science and Education Network.

Mayo Performing Arts Center is located at 100 South Street in Morristown, New Jersey.

The 27th Annual Blackwood Pumpkin Festival
Now that summer is officially in the rearview mirror – even with an occasional warm-weather day – the time has come for thoughts to turn to things autumnal. That could mean painting a pumpkin or constructing a scarecrow for Halloween decorating. It might be checking out a craft fair for an early start on holiday shopping. It could involve an outdoor spot with live entertainment to see and hear without slathering on high-number sunscreen. Or maybe it’s just taking in an activity that’s fun for the whole gang, even the four-legged ones.
