      You might think Germans have no sense of humor, and that a German physicist has to be the least funny person on the planet. That is, you may think this is true until you meet Vince Ebert. Vince is set to win heads and hearts with his show »SEXY SCIENCE« Serious Humor – Made in Germany. Join Vince as he explains scientific facts using the fundamental laws of humor: Why is the sky blue? Why is the night black? Why shouldn’t we eat yellow snow?

Vince has hosted a prime-time TV show about science on German television for six years. In 2018, he debuted his English show SEXY SCIENCE: Serious Humor at the English Theatre in Frankfurt. He has just embarked on a year-long tour in the United States with a mission to convey scientific concepts through humor.
