There will be food at Brown’s show – lots of food, but also his signature brand of crazy and wacky science. When it comes to volunteers, you may want to think twice. Volunteers will be selected at random to participate live and onstage with Alton Brown, and if pictures from past shows tell us anything, it’s that there’s typically some sort of steam, freezing, or fire involved. It looks like there could be games, spinning wheels, costumes, and possibly puppets, too. Think of a cooking expo on steroids, except really happy and not angry at all.
Superfans may enjoy the VIP experience, which is reported to include prime seats, exclusive access to the pre-show soundcheck, and an “intimate” post-show Q&A. The show runs for roughly two hours, and VIP guests will get to skip the line for fun show merchandise too.
Since we simply can’t wait for more updates ourselves, we’ll leave you with a critic’s review of one of Brown’s previous live performances: “Yes, the show is wildly indulgent. It is also a hoot,” (via New York Times). The reviewer also wrote, “This one-man variety show combines cooking lore with physics, chemistry, comedy and a live band.” That sure sounds like fun.
