A show that's equal measures hilarious, educational, and deeply personal. Scientist turned stand-up comedian Ben Miller takes you on a journey that explores everything from chairs to thermodynamics with wit and humor that makes these topics both approachable and delightful. And you probably like that sort of thing, nerd.

Ben Miller is an NYC based scientist turned comedian who has been working for the past 7 years. In that time, he has performed at all the top clubs in the city such as Broadway Comedy Club, Stand Up NY, Carolines, and The Stand. In addition, he has performed in the New York Comedy Festival and Boston Comedy Festival. He was once ranked as the top roast battler in NYC. He has a degree in Materials Science and Engineering, worked on a science bus, 3D printed cookies and has diffused a few bar fights while on stage. In 2023, he was an Artist in Residence at Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, the first ever stand-up comedian selected by the National Parks Arts Foundation. His jokes are sharp and self-deprecating, and he was once called “one of NYC’s best pound-for-pound joke writers” which isn’t saying much considering how little he weighs.
