StarTalk Live with special guest host Bill Nye the Science Guy and co-host Eugene Mirman
StarTalk, with usual host Neil deGrasse Tyson, is the groundbreaking weekly talk show that bridges the divide between Pop Culture and Pop Science. With its unique combination of comedy and celebrity star power, StarTalk pulls the science out of the ordinary, no matter what the subject – and pulls the pop culture out of the scientific, no matter what the topic. It rides the wave of “Geek Chic” pop culture (think Big Bang Theory) to entice and enchant a broad and undiscovered audience.
Tyson is joined each week by a comedian co-host and special guest. Popular comedians include: Eugene Mirman, Chuck Nice, Lynne Koplitz, Chris Hardwick, Kristen Schaal, Scott Adsit, Wyatt Cynak, Jim Gaffigan, Sarah Silverman, John Oliver, Jason Sudeikis, John Hodgman, and other high profile comedic talent.
Celebrity guests have included Jon Stewart, Morgan Freeman, Joan Rivers, Buzz Aldrin, Alan Alda, Peter Max, Nichelle Nichols, Oliver Sacks, Stephen Colbert, Whoopi Goldberg, Dan Aykroyd, Alan Richman, Anthony Bourdain, Bill Maher, Moby, and many more.
Join StarTalk each week, as Tyson reveals ever new wonders of Space and Science. So get your geek on, and learn something for a change!
PLEASE NOTE: Bill Nye is the special guest host for this event — Neil deGrasse Tyson is not appearing.
