Ben Miller’s Stand-Up Science

Sat, June 15

Stand-Up Science Presents: Volcano

What happens when a comedian walks into a volcano?

In 2023, Ben Miller was the artist in residence at Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, the first ever stand-up comedian selected. This was probably a terrible idea on their part. Performing in VT’s only public planetarium – the perfect stage for an explosive show – this scientist turned stand-up comedian explores volcanology, entomology, Hawaiian history, cats, cookies, and more.

Over the past seven years, Ben has performed at all the top clubs in the city such as Stand Up NY, Carolines, and The Stand. In 2022, his debut hour, “Stand-Up Science,” toured 50+ cities across the US and Europe.

This show is recommended for ages 18+
