Reviews of the show.
“Overflowing with clever dialog and nice insight. Wyncia and I enjoyed it a great deal. Gregg has a wonderfully twisted mind and a delightfully intriguing sense of humor that he freely shares with others. Thanks much. The net of all that yields fresh perspectives that are most useful in examining our own souls and presuppositions.”- Larry Kinney
“Science has never been so funny, and I'm not referring to climate change denial! Treat yourself to a buffet of stimulation; audio, visual, mental, emotional, and if you're into that sort of thing, spiritual!” - KJ Bernhard
The opening song, Sound of Science, should be an anthem at planetariums across the country! People almost got up and danced! Just loved the visual story-telling combined with interesting vignettes about Einstein and Newton and other philosophers. - Melissa Page
I had no idea we are 2 million years overdue for an asteroid collision with planet Earth! I enjoyed the way Gregg brings cosmic science and everyday life into the same jokes. Favorite line: I am a free spirit, but I'm raising my rates soon! - Charlie Stein
About Curved-Space Comedy
In the early 1900s, Sigmund Freud wrote, “Neurosis is the inability to cope with ambiguity." A few years later, F. Scott Fitzgerald similarly wrote: "The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in the mind at the same time -- and still retain the ability to function.” Quantum physicist Niels Bohr also said something very similar:
"How wonderful that we have met with paradox. Now we have some hope of making progress."
In his writing and stage shows, Gregg Eisenberg explores and plays with the principles of polarity, ambiguity, uncertainty, and sanity, inviting you on an adventure from the rolling comforts of cliché to the steep chasms of contradiction.
