"MythBusters Jamie & Adam UNLEASHED!" presents a fantastical evening of onstage experiments, audience participation, videos and behind-the-scenes stories.

"MythBusters Jamie & Adam UNLEASHED!" brings fans face-to-face with the curious world of Jamie and Adam as the duo matches wits on stage with each other and members of the audience.
Jamie has announced he will end touring with the live show this year.
One of the most highly regarded and watched series on the Discovery Channel, "MythBusters" is now in its 13th season. Co-hosted by Jamie and Adam, the show mixes scientific method with gleeful curiosity and plain, old-fashioned ingenuity to create its own signature style of explosive experimentation - and the supporting or de-bunking of urban myths that we live with day to day.
Jamie and Adam have become spokespersons at large for applying science to real life - most recently as hosts of the Discovery Channel special "iGenius: How Steve Jobs Changed the World," and have appeared on numerous shows, including "Late Show with David Letterman," "Good Morning America," "The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson," "The Colbert Report," NPR's "All Things Considered" and "Morning Edition." The MythBusters have been invited to participate on a panel at Comic-Con, where their appearances have sold-out four years running.
Jamie and Adam serve as guest editors for Popular Mechanics and were featured on the cover of the September 2009 issue. That same year, they were inducted as honorary members into Sigma Xi, the Scientific Research Society. They are honorary lifetime members of the California Science Teachers Association and were named honorary engineers and honorary members of the Francis Crowe Society at the University of Maine. Both Adam and Jamie were given honorary doctorates at the University of Twente in the Netherlands for their efforts at popularization of science.
