Mythbusters Comes to Atlanta!




The Fox Theatre is thrilled to announce that the all-new live show MythBusters Jamie & Adam UNLEASHED!, starring Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, co-hosts of the Emmy-nominated Discovery series "MythBusters,” debuts in Atlanta for one night only Sunday, Nov. 15 at 7 p.m.

Tickets for Mythbusters Jamie & Adam UNLEASHED! go on sale to the public Friday, May 8, at 10 a.m. Tickets, priced at $33, $50, $75, and $125 are available online at www.FoxTheatre.org, by phone at (855) 285-8499, or visiting the Fox Theatre Ticket Office.  Discounted tickets are available for groups of 10 or more by calling 404-881-2000.  A limited number of VIP tickets are also available online only for $175, which includes a post-show meet & greet, a Q&A session, and photo opportunities.

MythBusters Jamie & Adam UNLEASHED! presents a fantastical evening of on-stage experiments, audience participation, exciting videos, and behind-the-scenes stories.  With this show, fans join Jamie and Adam onstage to assist in their mind-blowing and mind-twisting approaches to science.  MythBusters Jamie & Adam UNLEASHED! brings you 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 Hyneman has announced that he will end touring with the live show this year.

Since 2012, Jamie and Adam have toured North America, Australia, and New Zealand with their live show.  To date, they have performed in 108 cities, given 119 performances, over 200,000 people have seen them onstage, and the tour has grossed over $12 million.  This fall, the tour will perform 31 dates across the US and Canada.

One of the most highly regarded and watched series on the Discovery Channel, "MythBusters" is now in its thirteenth season.  Co-hosted by Hyneman and Savage, 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 debunking 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,” “Countdown with Keith Olberman,” and many more.  They were invited to participate in Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s Rally to Restore Fear And/Or Sanity and have received the Young Artist Award for inspiring young people in the interest of science.  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 Hyneman and Savage were given honorary Doctorates at the University of Twente in the Netherlands for their efforts at popularization of science.

Jamie and Adam produced and starred in an H1N1 Public Service Announcement for the White House and were chosen by the President to retest the Archimedes legend using 500 schoolchildren as surrogate soldiers.

They appeared as themselves in the movie Darwin Awards and have made several cameos on other TV shows, including CSI.  And In 2010, Hyneman and Savage received the Outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award in Cultural Humanism from the Harvard Secular Society.

About Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage

Jamie Hyneman is the owner of M5 Industries, an effects company specializing in problematic custom builds.  Besides serving as headquarters of “MythBusters,” M5 continues to work on various research & development projects for private clients.

After trying his hand at careers as various as librarian at the United Nations in Geneva to running a diving and sailing charter business in the Caribbean, Hyneman began his career in show business as special effects shop assistant in New York and later in San Francisco as a crew member on films including “Robocop,” “Arachnophobia,” and “Naked Lunch.”

While managing Colossal Pictures’ model shop in San Francisco, Hyneman was given the opportunity to take over – and M5 Industries was born.

Hyneman graduated from Indiana University with a degree in Russian.  He has received an honorary engineering degree from the University of Maine as well as an honorary doctorate of engineering from Villanova University, with whom he has an ongoing collaborative relationship to help develop new safety concepts for the military.  He is the holder of several patents and the winner of numerous industry awards.

Hyneman currently resides the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife.

Adam Savage received a call from Jamie Hyneman in 2002 to participate in a demo for a TV show, which turned into the wildly popular Discovery Channel & SBS series “MythBusters.” 

Savage immersed himself in the NYC arts scene before moving to San Francisco in 1990 to parlay his skills into the thriving theater scene.  There he worked for dozens of companies as set designer, prop master, art director, and producer before falling into the machine art community where he learned welding, pneumatics, hydraulics, electronics, and robot-building.

After exhibiting his work in over 50 art shows nationwide, Savage caught the eye of the special effects industry and began working as a prop builder and art director for major commercials for Sega, Coca-Cola, Nike, Burger King, and Chevrolet.  His work on a Coca-Cola commercial earned him a Clio Award nomination.

After a 18-month stint as head of research & development for startup toy company ZOOB, Savage joined George Lucas’ Industrial Light and Magic, where he worked on “Star Wars: Episodes 1 and 2,” “Galaxy Quest,” “Space Cowboys,” “A.I.,” “Terminator 3,” “The Mummy,” and dozens of commercials.  During this time he also worked as model-shop supervisor for the two “Matrix” sequels as well as taught at the Academy of Art College in San Francisco.

Savage continues to dabble in his multiple hobbies, including passionately restoring his vintage four-wheel drive vehicle and accruing new pieces for his movie prop collection.  He currently lives in San Francisco with his wife, twin boys and two dogs.
