About this Event

What does it take to be a National Geographic Explorer? Join three comedians and a surprise guest explorer as they discover the answer for themselves. Host CHRIS DUFFY leads a comedic adventure of science and discovery full of interactive games, sketches, and hilariously misguided guesses to figure out what our explorer does all day.

Chris is a staff writer for National Geographic’s Explorer and the creator and host of You’re the Expert, a live show, podcast, and public radio program on Boston’s WBUR where three comedians try to guess what a scientist studies.

Last spring, marine biologist CLARE FIESELER told comedians APARNA NANCHERLA, MAEVE HIGGINS, and HARI KONDABOLU about why her research matters—but also why it once caused her to run over a set of lawn furniture with her car. This fall, who knows which cutting-edge explorer we’ll meet or what we'll find out.
