Ask Dr. Science
Ask Dr. Science is a daily humorous radio sketch produced by the comedy troupe Duck's Breath Mystery Theatre. It is broadcast on many public radio stations, using a format that mixes elements of a commercial bumper and a public service announcement. A concerned citizen asks a question, which is answered by an expert, "Dr. Science." Not surprisingly, the questions are never answered correctly, and are often little more than a launching point for a non sequitur monologue from Dr. Science. The show's motto is "He knows more than you do." The sketch always concludes with the disclaimer that he is "not a real doctor," although Dr. Science insists he has "a Master's Degree... in science!"
In the segment's earliest days, it was known as Ask Mr. Science.
The character originated on the TV show Out of Control where he was called "Professor Gravity" in 1985.
Coffey and Kessler wrote The Official Dr. Science Big Book of Science Simplified! in 1986.
