This turned out to be an excellent show.
In case you're wondering what Alton Brown could do to fill two-and-a-half hours, I'll just say it was very much a departure from the material he does on Food Network. There was original music (he is a passable singer, guitarist, and saxophonist), which included songs about caffeine and the Easy Bake Oven he secretly wanted when he was a child. He also did some hilarious stand up comedy material on "Ten Things I Know For Certain About Food". First on the list is "Chickens don't have fingers", after which he talks at length about how he once terrified his young daughter's sleepover friends by serving them chicken feet with the toenails still attached.
Then there were cooking demonstrations. The one below is "Mega Bake", which is an oversized Easy Bake Oven. Instead of a single bulb, this one is powered by 54 1000-watt stage lights and reaches an internal temperature of 680 degrees. To demonstrate, he brings someone up from the audience to make a pizza and bake it.
Good stuff and very entertaining!
