Details

Robin's first new stand up show in three years is a clash of the two cultures, a joyous romp through his favourite artists and strangest scientific ideas. From the work of Stanley Spencer to Niels Bohr, it is 90 minutes fizzing with ideas about creativity in science and art, as well as asking why we believe we see what we see and why we believe what we believe.

Robin will have just finished a 70 date, record breaking tour with Brian Cox that concludes at Wembley Arena.

2017 will also see two new series of the award winning Infinite Monkey Cage and the publication of Robin's new book, I'm a Joke...and So Are You (Atlantic books)

“an evening so bursting with energy and ideas...it’s a bundle of fascinating, surprising digressions” The Times review of most recent show - Blooming, Buzzing Confusion.

Robin is the winner of a Sony Gold and Rose d'Or for the Infinite Monkey Cage and the Time Out Outstanding Contribution to Comedy, as well as The Francis Crick Science Journalism Award and 3 Chortle awards.
