You’re the Expert

You’re the Expert is a new radio show on 90.9 WBUR, Boston’s NPR news station. Hosted and produced by Chris Duffy, each show features an expert in a specialized field, along with a panel of 3 comedians. Through games, sketches, and hilariously misguided guesses, the comedians try to figure out what our expert studies all day. The show also features a discussion with our expert where we hear about their latest findings and why their field is important. You’re the Expert bridges the gap between comedy and academia, in a show that’s laugh-out-loud funny but also packed full of meaningful information. This very special installment is co-presented by the Cambridge Science Festival.

Chris Duffy

Chris Duffy is a standup comedian and improviser who has performed at colleges and festivals throughout the country (including SF Sketchfest, Caltech, Brown, Harvard, the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, the Cambridge Science Festival, and more). Chris is also the creator and host of You’re the Expert, a live show and public radio program on WBUR where three comedians try to guess what a professor studies all day. Don’t confuse him with professional bodybuilder Chris Duffy. While they share identical names and physiques, they are different people.

In addition to comedy, Chris is a writer whose work has appeared in The New York Times, Boston Globe, Makeshift Magazine, and Wag’s Revue. Chris, a former fifth grade teacher, leads workshops at schools and universities on using humor in the classroom and consults on various projects at the intersection of comedy, education, and communication.
