"BRAINSS."--author Neil Gaiman (American Gods, Coraline) on You, Your Brain, & You.
You, Your Brain, & You is an award-winning fake documentary that briefly profiles 81 people who have been helped by the Brain Institute with things like intelligence, creativity, telekinesis, controlling the weather, changing the Earth's magnetic poles--you know, the usual brain stuff.
Along the way, you'll meet several Brain Institute clients: a young woman who wants to use her mind to destroy her high school with a volcano. A man who travels cross-country electrically via power lines. A woman who conquers procrastination by bending space-time, despite its effect on others. A heartsick man who can control the weather, using that power to lash out at an ex-girlfriend with a rain of burning toads. A woman who can talk to fish (but sadly, it turns out fish are incredibly dull). And many, many more.
But is the Brain Institute really helping people? Professor Howard Mackin doesn't think so, and he's trying to prove that the mysterious head of the Brain Institute (known only as "#41") is a fraud.
The fast-paced, Pythonesque comedy features some folks you may know: Kevin Murphy (Mystery Science Theater 3000). Kevin Allison (MTV's The State). Ali Farahnakian (30 Rock, The Bourne Legacy). Dion Flynn (President Obama on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon). Mark Volman from the band Turtles ("Happy Together"). Comedy writer Joe Garden (The Onion, Adult Swim).
Plus: some of New York City's hottest comedians, like Livia Scott, Abbi Crutchfield, Sam Grittner, Sean Crespo, Dan Wilbur, Griffin Newman, Subhah Agarwal, Anthony DeVito, Katina Corrao, and more.
