We sent my 15 year old nephew and a couple of lucky prize winners off to see @braincandylive last night at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre. He said it was “really good” and he “really enjoyed the whole show” which is like 6 whole words from a 15 year old boy who normally just grunts so it must have been good!
Adam Savage (the Mythbusters guy) and Michael Stevens (that YouTube guy VSauce) have joined forces to bring this one of a kind interactive, hands-on, minds-on theatrical experience to Australia. The show was full of crazy toys, tools and demonstrations that kept the crowd entertained for the whole 90 minute show.
The show is great for all ages (but started at 7:30pm which probably rules the younger ones out) and was all about the Science of Air. Adam and Michael explained basic physics concepts using dry ice, ping-pong ball machine guns, and vacuum-tube cannons. The whole show was exciting, loud and FUN!
They like to call it an interactive, hands-on, minds-on theatrical experience……which is EXACTLY what it is.
Zeke (8) was one of our competition winners and said his favourite part of the show was “……when Adam used a leaf blower to blow the toilet paper onto Michael, he was like a Mummy”
There was crowd participation, jokes, experiments, music, laughs. Blake described it as half music concert, half science experiment.
It comes highly recommended so if you’re in Melbourne, Sydney or Brisbane this week and looking for something exciting to do with the kids visit www.braincandylive.com
Let’s hope they come back to Adelaide soon!
