Alton Brown Live! The Edible Inevitable Tour

For foodies and Food Network enthusiasts, Alton Brown hardly needs an introduction. He is the creator of the Food Network show, ''Good Eats'', host and commentator on ''Iron Chef America'', and is a mentor on ''The Next Food Network Star''.

He brings his brand of quirky humor and culinary-science antics to the Majestic on his Edible Inevitable tour. The two-hour show is a unique blend of stand-up comedy, food experimentation, talk show antics, multimedia lecture, and – for the first time – live music. Audience interaction is strictly enforced throughout the evening; if you’re called upon as a culinary assistant, you’ll definitely want to don the lab coat, as things tend to get messy. Audiences are sure to be amazed, amused, edified, and perhaps a little terrified.
