Do androids dream of electric sheep?
When will robots be able brew and deliver beer?
We're fact checking the science behind some of the most popular robot concepts from books, movies, and TV shows and asking, "Wtf?! Could that actually happen?" Join our stack of hilarious comedians and science experts as we comedically dig into the limits of artificial intelligence, the plausibility of potential doomsday scenarios, and how much we hate/love robots in our everyday lives. Come for an evening of stand-up comedy, audience games, and funny demonstrations showing how dumb Alexa really is.
