Up Late in the Lab is a late night sketch comedy show all about science. Think Chappelle's Show set in a science lab with some The Daily Show elements thrown in. Each episode explores a specific theme or scientific principle through comedy sketches, unconventional lessons, exciting experiments and interviews with notable scientists and celebrities. The series celebrates the passion and fun science inspires in all of us.
Up Late in the Lab tackles scientific concepts by posing simple questions and then guiding the viewer through the principles at work with comedy. As each episode progresses, the concepts the audience learns pay off with sketches and bits that are even funnier because they now know the science behind it. The show takes on current issues in science by using biting satire to comment on issues like climate change, evolution, renewable energy and science education.
