Join other lovers of reason for live stand-up comedy featuring three performers of the rationalist mindset. The show is titled "The Evolution of Comedy Tour." According to the tour's website:
"... No topic is safe. No belief system is left unchecked! Religion, politics, commonly held beliefs of all kinds will be picked apart and comedically skewered. If you are a skeptic, a rationalist, a secular humanist, a science lover or just a person who loves smart comedy this show was made for you and you will not see anything else like it. The closing bit alone will be worth the price of admission!"
The show starts at 8pm but the doors open at 7, so come early and hang out for an hour. For more information about the tour and to buy tickets, see http://theevolutionofcomedy.com and http://standupscottsdale.com/.

A skeptic is one who prefers beliefs and conclusions that are reliable and valid to ones that are comforting or convenient, and therefore rigorously and openly applies the methods of science and reason to all empirical claims, especially their own. A skeptic provisionally proportions acceptance of any claim to valid logic and a fair and thorough assessment of available evidence, and studies the pitfalls of human reason and the mechanisms of deception so as to avoid being deceived by others or themselves. Skepticism values method over any particular conclusion. - Dr. Steven Novella
