Bill Nye - Live In Australia
Scientist, Netflix star, author, comedian, inventor… Is there anything Bill Nye ‘The Science Guy’ can’t do?
Off the back of his hit Netflix series Bill Nye Saves The World, this is your chance to catch the beloved celebrity scientist live and in person and even ask him a few questions!
This will be Nye’s very first time in Australia. Using the trademark earnest, intellectual charm and humour that has kept him a household name for the last 30 years, Nye’s live show uses footage, photos and experiments to give audiences the low down on the cosmos, evolution and how we fit into it - and you won’t need a doctorate to understand it.
Bill Nye is a man with a mission: to help foster a scientifically literate society, to help people everywhere understand and appreciate the science that makes our world work. Making science entertaining and accessible is something Bill has been doing most of his life.
After leaving University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1977, Bill packed up and moved to Seattle to take up a job with Boeing as an engineer. It was in Seattle that Bill began to combine his love of science with his flair for comedy, when he won the Steve Martin look-alike contest and developed dual careers as an engineer by day and a stand-up comic by night. After leaving his engineering day job, Bill made the transition to a comedy writer and performer on Seattle’s homegrown ensemble comedy show “Almost Live” in 1986. This is where “Bill Nye the Science Guy®” was born.
While working on the show, Bill won seven Emmy Awards for writing, performing, and producing. The show won 18 Emmys in five years. In between creating the shows, he wrote five children’s books about science and is currently writing another on space exploration.
Bill Nye Live In Australia is your ultimate chance to see optimism and curiosity, wonder and science, comedy and intelligence, manifested on stage this October. Don’t miss it.
