What's in a show?

Lines of Best Fit shows feature an expert scientist giving a short talk about their research, which the improvisors are hearing for the first time. After the talk, you'll have your chance to ask the scientist questions, and then the improvisors create 12-15 minutes of scenes inspired by the science! In a one-hour show, we'll feature two different speakers.Every show features new scientists and topics, so you'll never see the same show twice. Previous speakers have talked about vapes, lasers, treatments for stroke, how to detect brain inflammation, and more!
