Using Comedy to Share Science

One great means of communication - for any topic - is comedy. Today, we want to share a couple of short videos that approach science using humor.

The first comes from THE science comedian, Brian Malow, who by his stand-up style, makes it clear that the audience is in for some laughs. At the same time, there is no question that science will be taking center stage.

This is intentionally educational, but the story they use lightens the mood enough for people to stick around and absorb the facts.

Finally, we have Norm Goldblatt, a scientist turned comedian.

Which is the most effective at engaging you? Which would be best for a non-scientific audience?What other comedic ways have you seen/heard science presented?
