MythBusters: Behind the Myths Tour, which was initially created in 2011 as a live stage show by Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, still continues to perform across the US, conducting experiments on stage alongside discussing the show's background details. Savage and Hyneman who are both co-hosts of the Emmy Award-nominated Discovery series titled MythBusters, promise that the show will be a surprising evening of on-stage experiments, rocking video, behind-the-scenes stories and audience participation. For the first time, fans will be able to join the two hosts on stage and help them in their mind-boggling and rather unorthodox approach towards science. These shows really bring the audience face to face with the duo's curious world as they match their wits with each other on stage as well as with the audience. The event is family friendly and suitable for all ages, making MythBusters tickets a perfect treat among science-loving families and friends.
The science entertainment TV show MythBusters, which is currently being produced and created by Australia-based Beyond TV Productions, is hosted by special effects experts Hyenman and Savage. The two use scientific methods to test the validity of myths, rumors, adages, news stories, internet videos and movie scenes. The program is among the oldest and most watched on Discovery Channel where it has been preceded by Canada's Daily Planet and US' How It's Made.
The series idea was initially created for Discovery Channel under the title of 'Tall Tales or True' by Aussie producer and writer Peter Rees in 2002. The proposal, though initially rejected, was agreed upon with change. Discovery agreed to co-produce and develop three episodes for a pilot. Hyneman was among the first few special effect artists asked to come up with a casting video, for which he invited Savage to co-host. The show's earliest episodes aired in July 2006 on BBC Two in the UK in their edited thirty-minute versions.
Currently, the show is filmed mainly in San Francisco, while some of its production elements are completed in Artarmon, Australia. Some experimentation and planning is done at Hyenman's San Francisco-based workshop, while other experiments that require specific space are filmed at locations, usually close to San Francisco Bay Area or other places in northern California. Interestingly, filming can go further away depending on the nature of the experiment, for example, to conduct alligator experiments they go to Florida; and to Africa for elephant and shark myths.
The two hosts of MythBusters have since been appearing on various entertainment programs including the syndicated radio show Bob and Tom Show, NPR news program Considering All Things, Good Morning America and Late Show with Letterman. Their show itself has been broadcast in many counties, essentially by each country's edition of Discovery Channel, while excerpts from the show have also been broadcast as part of Beyond Tomorrow, which is produced by Beyond Television. The show, which is now in its ninth terrific season, is becoming more popular.
Both, Hyneman and Savage are charismatic and have their unique style; while the latter is chatty and enthusiastic, always willing to bet on the results, the former appears more serious with his rather extravagant mustache. And what's is more is that they are creative and ever willing to experiment new ideas to make their work more interesting. Besides taking the show on tour, they also came up with a traveling museum exhibit titled Mythbusters: The Explosive Exhibition which they developed through the course of more than five years, finally premiering at Chicago's Museum of Industry and Science in 2012.
The two have had their share of wrong experiments and mishaps that rendered their test equipment useless. Their rocket in Rocket Car Revisit ignited into an explosion. At times like these Hyneman only breaks into his characteristic wicked grin, which of course is something the audience are only waiting to see. Their live shows are not to be missed, so make sure to grab your share of MythBusters tickets and watch the scientifically curious duo bust some myths.
