Curved Space Comedy Presents: Even the Earth is Bipolar

Oct 25, 2018 | 7:30PM

The physicist Werner Heisenberg once stated: “The Universe is not only stranger than we think; it is stranger than we can think.” Join science-comedian and stand-up philosopher Gregg Eisenberg for Even the Earth is Bipolar - a multi-media show about atoms, space, the speed of light, volcanos, geometry, and the human condition - to test Heisenberg’s hypothesis. Allow Gregg to be your conceptual concierge, taking you on a visual and musical journey from the edges of the Milky Way down to the molecules in human DNA in this 75-minute exploration of evolution, ecology, and entropy.

 

“The show about quieting the mind that everyone is talking about.”

 

“For people in no shape for the human condition.”

 

“A show about impermanence that will last forever.”

 

Appropriate for all ages, though some content is more suitable for ages 14+. Gregg will be signing his book: “Letting Go Is All We Have To Hold Onto: Humor For Humans” after the show.

Gregg Eisenberg is a geographer, author, and stand-up philosopher from Boulder, Colorado. He formed Curved-Space Comedy in 2016 and under that name performs his multi-media, science-comedy show Even the Earth is Bipolar in planetariums, publishes his books, and provides private speaking events. In 2018, he released Letting Go Is All We Have to Hold Onto: Humor for Humans, a catalog of carefully curated laughorisms in which the reader is taken on a comedic adventure from the “comforts of cliché” to the “chasms of contradiction.”

“The desire to spread levity in the world weighs heavily upon me.” – Gregg Eisenberg
