Comedy - Science - Humor


The world is a funny, funny place. How else can you explain helium’s ability to improve your singing voice, the Vatican’s planetarium, and the innate joys of bubble wrap? But oddly, science, our best tool to explain the world around us, is often considered boring, complicated and intimidating. Well, we don’t think it has to be. We are the Galileo Players, a professional sketch comedy and improv troupe that focuses on making audiences laugh using scientific characters and events as inspiration. We delight in celebrating the world through a scientific eye, challenging people and making them laugh and think at the same time. We tour our theatrical comedy shows around the country performing at colleges, festivals, scientific conferences, and corporat Please share your funny scientific experiences, facts and stories with this community. We'd love to hear about it.
