Comedian and Onalaska native Shane Mauss will perform a hometown show at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 17 at the Cavalier Theater in downtown La Crosse.

Mauss’ Stand Up Science tour is a blend of comedy and education, billed as “funnier than a TED Talk and smarter than your usual night of comedy.”

A veteran comedian and podcaster, Mauss has appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan, Showtime, BBC, Epix and more. On his podcast, Here We Are, he interviews academic experts about what it means to be human, with episodes on evolution, intelligence, emotions, addiction and more.

Wednesday at the Cavalier Theater, Mauss will be joined by three other presenters, including two UW-La Crosse professors:

Barret Klein, an associate professor of entomology and animal behavior.

Nese Nasif, an assistant professor of marketing.
