Alton Brown Live!

The main reason Cindy and I went to LA recently was because we had purchased tickets to the Alton Brown Live! Show at the Pantages Theatre. I love the Pantages and would see most anything there. We weren't quite sure what kind of a show we were going to see. We had enjoyed his show Good Eats! and his appearances on other Food Network programs, but still didn't quite know what we were in for.

 He was much like he was on Good Eats. He said this show let him do things that they wouldn't let him do on TV. It was a series of sketches, songs and demonstrations.

They started with a silly rap.

 There was a sketch that included a prop cow that was always on Good Eats. This time they got chocolate milk out of it for a demonstration of how to make instant ice cream using two fire extinguishers.

 Audience participation was fun. They got some funny folks from the audience.
 He played some silly songs he wrote about food.

Another sketch was about how he always wanted an easy bake oven as a kid. And then recently built his own souped up version.

 The Mega Bake, a souped up easy bake oven was used to make Pizza in less than 10 seconds.

Again with a member from the audience. It was lots of fun!
