MythBusters first toured Australia in 2014 with sold out venues filled with young and not so young curious minds. Brains were also indeed hungry for Brain Candy Live! when it toured to packed houses across the US earlier this year. It will be a total work out for the thinking!

Adam Savage and Michael Stevens have joined forces to bring this one of a kind interactive, hands-on, minds-on theatrical experience to Australia. They're master explainers, who bring along their crazy toys, incredible tools and mind-blowing demonstrations for a celebration of curiosity that literally has audiences shouting "more" after their favorites. Audiences are engaged and enthusiastic test subjects, as they spend two hours laughing, learning and exploring during a theatrical experience like no other.

Every night, Savage and Stevens literally can't wait to unleash their collective sense of wonder, curiosity and fun for each new audience. They're inviting everyone to join-in and get their minds messy as their demonstrations leap off the stage. Adam and Michael's BRAIN CANDY LIVE!

Smart is the new superpower and two of this planet's most entertaining everyday heroes are coming here to rescue you and your family from boredom!

One of the most highly regarded and watched series on Discovery Channel, "MythBusters" ran for 14 earth-shattering years. Co-executive produced and Co-hosted by Savage, the show mixed scientific method with problem solving gleeful curiosity and plain old-fashioned ingenuity to confirm or bust myths, popular misconceptions and creating its own signature style of explosive experimentation. Today, in addition to creating content for his website tested.com Adam has become a proponent for making, working with the White House to encourage kids and adults alike to get their hands dirty. He's also a regular at conventions across the US, where his elaborate and handmade costumes (such as Totoro at New York Comic Con) attract much attention ... and hugs.

Michaels' passion for learning, science and making curiosity contagious led him to create Vsauce in 2010. The YouTube channel captures attention with fun questions like, "What Color Is a Mirror?" "Can You Count Past Infinity?" and "Why Are Things Creepy?" Now reaching a collective 17 million subscribers with video views in excess of 2 billion, Vsauce has grown into one of the largest educational networks on the web. Last year, it received the Webby for Best Science and Education Network.
