Robin Ince: Pragmatic Insanity

At Lakeside Arts Centre


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

In 2017 Robin will also complete a record-breaking tour with Brian Cox that concludes at Wembley Arena; appear in two new series of the award-winning Infinite Monkey Cage; and publish a new book - I'm a Joke...and So Are You (Atlantic books)

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