Tesla: Death rays & Elephants

Tesla: Death Rays & Elephants is science storytelling, science demos, and a critique of modern science debates all rolled into one sharp stage show. Nikola Tesla was a pretty big deal in the history of high voltage electricity, and this show explores the kooky oddities in his life.

Also, there's a Tesla Coil in the show. It's a device that spits out electrical sparks. It's pretty cool.

Tesla: Death Rays & Elephants will be taking place during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival at the Imperial Hotel, Melbourne.

March 30 to April 21, weekends and public holidays, at 4pm.

Book today! Bookings can be made online via the Melbourne International Comedy Festival
