Astronaut Training: a Space Camp game show for lunatics

SAT // JUN 01 // 06:30PM

Space exploration crash course meets 90's Nickelodeon game show

Join hosts Corinne Caputo (author of How To Success) and Loren Grush (Space Reporter at The Verge) as they put REAL scientists and REAL comedians through the rigorous tests of Astronaut Training to see who will “win” a “trip to Mars.” Our challenges simulate those actually done by astronauts-in-training, as if they were made by a gazillionaire with too much time on their hands. Only one flight crew can emerge: come witness who will become the next great American heroes!

Doors 6:30pm / Show 7:00pm
Tickets: $10 adv / $12 door

Maya Deshmukh
Maya is an actor and comedian in NYC. Hailing from the great state of New Jersey, she is very happy to no longer be bridge and tunnel.  Maya won first place in the NBC/UCB diversity showcase doing characters.  She can be seen performing as "Brown Rice" with her satirical fake K-pop girl group: AzN POP, as well as co-hosting a monthly "fashion-comedy" show called 'Fashion Puhleeze', where comedians break down trends very far from a red carpet.  She also appeared in the pilot for Tru-TV's Paid Off, and performed as an actor on UCB's Maude night.  Maya has been featured on Betches, Nick Mom, Funny or Die, and can be seen on season 2 of HBO's High Maintenance. When she is not doing comedy, working, or catching up on Real Housewives (of all cities), she is probably getting yelled at. She also works part-time as a general dentist (not a joke). Check out her website!  


Mary Beth Griggs
Mary Beth Griggs is the Science Editor at The Verge. Previously, she was a writer and editor at Popular Science.
