If your into astronomy and fascinated in quantum physics and love his shows on the BBC, and are a fan.. Don't go see his live shows, they are aimed at the 4 people in the crowd who walked in off the street, expect to be talked to like a secondary school student, when he said: This is the moon, the sun is a star just like all the other stars in the sky" I nearly died, it was a boring secondary school level lesson on astronomy.. Nothing mind blowing, he said I believe in the multiverse theory, I was thinking yes something interesting.. He then said "but I won't go into that now" and started explaining what a solar system is.. About 4 people in the audience who walked in off the street were really excited, the majority of the crowd left.. We left half hour early because were bored out of our heads.. In a specialist field to aim your talk at "the general public" is stupid.. He obviously thinks he is more popular than he actually is.. If you have no idea who he is, you will probably get something from the show.. If you understand anything more than secondary school physics, don't bother !
