CONCORD, NH – If Emmett “Doc” Brown from “Back to the Future” and culinary queen Julia Child had a baby, they’d likely turn out a love child who strongly resembles Alton Brown, longtime Food Network “Good Eats” show host and all around foodie geek.
The fact that Doc and Alton have the same last name is purely coincidental to the analogy, but for fans of the mad food scientist, here’s a head’s up: Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science Tour, the follow-up to the smash “Edible Inevitable” tour, will be making a stop at the Capitol Center for the Arts Nov. 1, 7 p.m. show time.
Fans can expect more comedy, talk show antics, multimedia presentations and music (yes, he sings), but Brown is adding a slew of fresh ingredients including new puppets, songs and bigger and potentially more dangerous experiments. Brown has a knack for mixing together a perfect base of science, music and food into two hours of pure entertainment. Critics and fans rave about the interactive fun when Brown invites an audience member on stage to serve as his assistant. According to Alton, “there will be plenty of new therapy inducing opportunities during our audience participation segments. I don’t want to give too much away, but we’re also going to play a little game with the audience,” says Brown.
Brown, author of the James Beard award-winning, “I’m Just Here for the Food,” and the New York Times bestselling sequence, “Good Eats,” has hosted numerous series including, “Cutthroat Kitchen,” “Camp Cutthroat” and “Iron Chef America” and created, produced and hosted the Peabody award winning series, “Good Eats” for 13 years on Food Network. Good Eats can still be seen on the Cooking Channel and Netflix.
The Capitol Center for the Arts is located at 44 South Main St. in Concord.
