Laughs, mythbusting coming soon to Augusta
He’s “fluffy;” they’re daring.
This month, these three celebrities are coming to The Bell Auditorium – comedian Gabriel Iglesias and “Mythbusters” hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman.
Iglesias’ show on Dec. 14 is part of his Stand-Up Revolution Tour.
His “Stand-Up Revolution” series debuted on Comedy Central in 2011. The show’s third season will air next spring.
This expressive comedian has been called “witty,” “electrifying” and “talented,” according to his website.
“Whether he’s telling a story about hanging out with his friends or telling the audience about his dream of former President Bill Clinton, Iglesias blends his impeccable vocal abilities with an uncanny knack for storytelling that keeps the crowds on the edge of their seats,” as described by Comedy Central.
He has headlined worldwide, in addition to his televised stand-up segments like 2009’s “I’m Not Fat...I’m Fluffy.”
Iglesias also has played parts in a handful of feature films, such as last year’s “Magic Mike” and this year’s “Planes.”
His Augusta performance will start at 7:30 p.m. and is $40.
Savage and Hyneman will appear a few days later on Dec. 19.
The two have co-hosted the Discovery Channel show “Mythbusters” since 2003.
“The program mixes scientific method with gleeful curiosity and plain old-fashioned ingenuity to create its own signature style of explosive experimentation – and the supporting or de-bunking of urban myths that we live with day to day,” according to a release.
Recent episodes have included a “Breaking Bad” special and a zombie-themed special.
The hosts’ “Mythbusters: Behind the Myths Tour” takes the experience from the screen to the stage.
Augusta is just one stop on this tour.
Live experiments is just one iota of things to come.
“With this show, fans join Savage and Hyneman on stage and assist in their mind-blowing and mind-twisting approach to science,” according to a release.
Savage has dealt with special effects for more than 20 years and has worked on several films, like “Star Wars” and “The Mummy,” with director George Lucas’ company Industrial Light and Magic.
Hyneman owns M5 Industries, which is the “Mythbusters” headquarters. He has degrees in Russian and engineering and has worked odd-end jobs like a librarian and a film crew member.
Their Augusta show will begin at 7:30 p.m. and is $40, $55 and $65.
Doors open an hour early for both performances at the Bell Auditorium.
The Bell Auditorium is at 712 Telfair St. For more information on Iglesias, visit fluffyguy.com.
