The host of Food Network’s Cutthroat Kitchen returns to NJPAC with a multi-media show that blends science, music and food into delicious entertainment.

In Alton Brown Live Beyond Eats!, fans can expect comedy, talk show antics, multimedia presentations, and music (yes, he sings). For this 2022 tour, Brown may also add a slew of fresh ingredients, including new puppets, new songs, plus bigger (and potentially more dangerous) experiments.

On television and on stage, Brown has a knack for mixing science, music and food into pure entertainment. According to Brown: “For this new tour, there will be plenty of new therapy-inducing opportunities during our audience participation segments. I don’t want to give too much away, but we’re also going to play a little game with the audience …”

Brown has hosted numerous television series, including Cutthroat Kitchen, Camp Cutthroat and Iron Chef America. He also created, produced and hosted the Peabody Award-winning Good Eats for 13 years on Food Network. Brown is the author of the James Beard Award-winning I’m Just Here for the Food, and the New York Times best-selling sequence, Good Eats. His recent Alton Brown: Every Day Cook is a collection of more than 100 personal recipes – along with a pinch of science and history.
