Allen Saakyan, Founder

Inspired by Neil deGrasse Tyson's StarTalk, Allen Saakyan founded Eureka! out of his passion for making complex subjects relatable. His two favorite words that he uses to describe himself are polymath (wide-ranging learning) and empath (emotional intelligence expert). He believes it will take AI the longest to automate the combination of those skills. Allen also produces Worlds Fair USA, mentors entrepreneurs, and speaks on topics like spacetime, evolution, consciousness, machine intelligence, and simulation theory at universities and corporations.

Kevin Whittinghill, Founder

Kevin Whittinghill loves comedy. Kevin loves science. So why not produce a science comedy show full of laughing and learning? As a comedian, Kevin has been entertaining audiences across the country with his dark yet playful sarcastic wit. He's performed at clubs and multiple festivals, including the Laughing Devil Comedy Festival, L.A.'s Scripted Comedy Festival, the Burbank Comedy Festival, and SF Sketchfest. Aside from comedy he has a background in film and theater, having worked with the likes of Hinton Battle, Stanley Tucci, and Steve Buscemi.
