The Ask Dr. Hal Show is a science question and answer nightclub act that features the unique talents of four individuals:

Dr. Hal is uniquely qualified to answer your questions

Krob plays "music" throughout the proceedings

Cappy D surfs the internet to find relevant and hysterical images

Chicken John moderates the show and is totally full of shit

Pete Goldie does a brief Outer Space Report that isn't at all too long

It's theater: but it's improv done without any acting.

There is poetry: Hal has memorized thousands of epic poems.

It's comedy: like stand up only you provide the material.

It's impossible: at times it's hard to believe that it's not scripted.

There are 400 tickets available (100 people per night). We have found this is a great way both advertise the show and sell tickets. If you want to come to this show, the only way to do it is here!

Risks and challenges

The only risk is that the show isn't funny and that's usually Chicken's fault. The challenge is to get Krob out of bed in time for the show.
