Chairman of The Ig Nobel Prize Laureates Association
Language: The speech and Q & A will be in English

 The Ig Nobel Prize may not be as prestigious or authoritative as the Nobel Prizes, but their positive impact on the human psyche is immeasurable. It celebrates achievements that make people laugh, and then to think about human behavior. It is an opportunity that is in short supply in stressful modern life.

 Before the 25th Ig Nobel Prize ceremony at Harvard University's Saunders Theater on September 17 -- and ahead of the rival Nobel Prize festivities -- the Club is honored to host the first Ig Nobel Prize event in Japan.

 This event features Marc Abrahams, editor and co-founder of the magazine "Annals of Improbable Research," who is the father and the master of ceremonies for the Ig Nobel Prize, in which eye-opening achievers in science, medicine, and technology receive the prizes from "genuine" Nobel laureates.

 With Abrahams at the head table at the show will be Yoshiro Nakamatsu, popularly known as Dr. NakaMats, a longtime inventor in his own right, who received the Ig Nobel Prize in nutrition in 2005 for photographing and analyzing every meal he has had over a period of over thirty years.

 Among other famous Japanese recipients is Daisuke Inoue, the inventor of karaoke.

 During his stay in Japan, Mr. Abrahams will attend Dr. NakaMats' 87th birthday and give lectures.

 Please reserve in advance, 3211-3161 or on the website (still & TV cameras inclusive). Reservations and cancellations are not complete without confirmation.
