Discounts are available for multiple bookings on the same day.
WEIRD SCIENCE COMEDY SHOW.
The WEIRD SCIENCE SHOWS contain side splitting humor but also is designed to teach the audience members while they laugh. Experiments rely heavily on audience participation and scientific principals such as leverage, air vortex, and even time travel are explored.
The WEIRD SCIENCE SHOW is the brainchild of Ron Lindberg, aka Rondini, an award winning entertainer from Appleton Wisconsin. Rondini has been performing as a professional magician and stage hypnotist since 1977, however he is also a 1992 graduate of UW Oshkosh with a degree in elementary education. In 1995, he decided to focus on his love of performing and "retired" from the teaching profession, but never lost his love of science and learning. In 2004, he began to consider putting together a wacky science show in which he could share his love of science and "other geeky stuff".
After a lengthy process of research and development, and some encouragement from his peers in the entertainment field, the WEIRD SCIENCE SHOW was launched in the fall of 2008.
“Doc Ron" would love to perform for your library. Please allow a 20x30' performance area. If needed, a sound system can be brought, or we can use yours. A head set microphone seems to work best, but a handheld cordless microphone can be used as well.
