The Scientists
The Scientists
Comedians and "scientists" Madelyn Freed (The Annoyance) and Blythe Roberson (New Yorker, The Onion) investigate a new scientific topic each month. From AI to romantic attraction to body decomposition, Madelyn and Blythe give an hour-long lecture with help from NYC's funniest comedians. At the end of every show, they bring out an actual scientific authority to pester with questions and to tell them where they went wrong.

Aparna Nancherla
Aparna Nancherla
Aparna Nancherla is by and large a comedian, or by and small rather. She has written for Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell and Late Night with Seth Meyers. You may have caught her standup on Conan and the Comedy Central Half Hour, her face on Master of None and Crashing, and her voice on Bojack Horseman. She was recently named one of Rolling Stone's "50 Funniest People Right Now" and you can see her in 2018 on the upcoming show Corporate on Comedy Central and the new season of Netflix's The Standups.
Paul Gale
Paul Gale is a comedic filmmaker. His work has been featured on the front pages of Reddit, BuzzFeed, and USA Today, as well as NBC's The TODAY Show. He’s developed short form television projects with MTV, worked as a Creative Producer at The Huffington Post, and is currently creating web shows with his friend, because why the heck not.

Eudora Peterson
Eudora Peterson
Eudora is a comedian from New Jersey, but she performs in New York because the rules there are much more lax. For example: in New York, you can be a prop comic and people will still respect you, even if you don't have credits. That said, she's been featured on Splitsider, Jezebel, The Huffington Post, and she's *never* used a prop during a performance. Never.
Madelyn Freed
Madelyn Freed
Madelyn Freed is a comedian moonlighting as a software developer. She performs long-form improv secretly. Freed is the founder of the Crone Collective, an organization that throws parties designed for you to meet your best friend.
Blythe Roberson
Blythe Roberson
Blythe Roberson is a writer and comedian who lives in Brooklyn. She is a contributor to The New Yorker, The Onion, and ClickHole and a staffer at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
