BRIEF SELF-DESCRIPTION: Spontaneous comedy from brutally honest science. Drexel professor Michael Yudell will exploit every ounce of his tenure to share subjects from impregnation to parasitic strategy, and senior Philly Improv Theater comedy team Asteroid! will use their every impulse to warp each lecture into ribald sketches.
WE THINK: What’s to say? It’s improv! Meaning it will change each night! Meaning it’s hard to review! But the talent of the team was obvious, although not every attempted sketch was always firing on all cylinders — and yet, strangely, some of the joy of improv is witnessing the fizzling out. The cute premise here is that of a teacher is giving a science lecture to six students, and then those students go on to riff on the subjects, which will change for each performance and when I saw it included the genesis of condoms. You’ll probably learn several weird science-history facts.
