Dark Matter: Part Stand-up, Part Science

Saturday, January 12, 2019, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm



“We’re going to talk about dark matter. We’re also going to talk about relationships.”

Dark Matter is a show for anyone who has ever looked at the universe and wondered, “how can I make this about me?”

Part stand-up, part science, Matthew Starr brings the audience along with him as he tries to understand his past relationships and also, the universe.

Whether you have a Ph.D. in Astrophysics or you have never looked in a telescope, Dark Matter is for everyone in the universe who has ever been in a relationship.


Matthew Starr explores the concept of Dark Matter through the eyes of someone learning about it for the first time. What came out of his research (aided by several experts on the subject) was an hysterical, personal piece that left the audience entertained, moved, and YES, educated on the subject.

“I am a science-loving geek, and a comedy-loving geek, I couldn’t have asked for more!” — Tanner Dahlin, Producer, World Science Festival
