By Devon Glenn 

Comedians Tig Notaro, Kyle Dunnigan, and David Huntsberger are taking their podcast “Professor Blastoff” on the road.

Every week, “Professor Blastoff” listeners learn the answers to important scientific and philosophical questions, like whether rosacea is just “tiny bugs pooping on your face,” with research provided by the group’s official researcher, Aaron Burrell.

Between April 27th and May 16th, listeners can look the rosacea right in the face, although Notaro’s spokesperson said that the live performances will be recorded for the internet audience as well.
