Marketing executives and politicians have turned science, the greatest revolution in thinking in history, into a package, a construct, just another angle with which to sell product or influence public opinion. But real science constantly challenges everything we know about everything, it sticks it to the man... Science isn't pop music: it's rock.
Ben McKenzie, the Man in the Lab Coat, is putting the rock back into rocket science with Science-ology, his third comedy lecture, directed by Scott Gooding. Through experiment, humour and raw energy, Ben tears down the veil of pop science and reveals the passionate and wonderful world that is the true heart of science. Science-ology follows Evolutionary (2005; "Brilliant" — 3RRR) and Listen to the Man in the Lab Coat (2004).
Ben McKenzie (writer/performer) is an actor, improviser and comedian. Aside from numerous theatrical and short film credits, he has performed for schools and is a veteran of seven Australian fringe festivals. He currently performs with improvisational comedy troupe The Crew, who have three shows in the Festival, and is also a science reporter for upcoming Melbourne community television program Planet Nerd . He is not a qualified scientist.
