Big Bang – Big Laughs! at Adler Planetarium

December 15, 2011 @ 6:00 pm - 12:00 am

$9 - $17

Ho Ho Ho like Santa with some comic relief from Natural Gas. Spice up this holiday season with some laughter, fun and a lighter take on science with an improv performance by Natural Gas from the Gift Theatre.

“Natural Gas is a group of Second City and iO (formerly ImprovOlympics) performers who approach the work of improvisation with the workmanlike attitude of the Jefferson Park home. It’s everything you expect from the Gift. Just more pirates and robots. And time traveling.” -Ed Flynn, Natural Gas
