His past acts have involved potentially dangerous experiments being performed by audience members, like the 10-second ice cream machine and the 3-minute Mega Bake Oven. This Food Network legend has proven he can seamlessly fuse humor, crowd involvement, mind-expanding material and creative food into one act. So if you yearn for an adventure in science, then chance being Alton Brown’s next onstage co-star for an evening by snatching some tickets up.
