Award-winning comedian Robin Ince is set to bring his new show, Happiness Through Science, to the Exeter Northcott this autumn.
Following on from his sell-out national tour of Uncaged Monkeys with Professor Brian Cox, and as co-presenter of BBC Radio 4‘s Sony Gold Award-winning series The Infinite Monkey Cage, Robin continues his comic exploration of the human condition in this new show.
Robin asks can you be happy and rational at the same time. Join him in a world of Schrodinger cats, multiverses and evolutionary conundrums.
Spend an entertaining evening in Robin’s company as he orienteers through the craggy landscape of evolution while plumbing the depths of his own murky consciousness, all without the aid of a safety net.
Robin Ince started his comedy career as a writer, working on shows including Alistair McGowan’s Big Impresison, V Graham Norton and Meet Ricky Gervais, his first of many collaborations with the Extras star.
In 2005 he started erudite comedy night The Book Club, loosely based around bad literature, which won him the innovation award at the 2006 Chortle Awards as well as the outstanding contribution to comedy accolade at that year’s Time Out awards.
Described by The Times as ‘thoughtful, provocative and very funny’, Robin appears regularly on television, popping up on shows like Mock The Week, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, The Now Show, The News Quiz and Loose Ends.
Robin Ince brings Happiness Through Science to the Exeter Northcott on October 30, 2011. Tickets cost £14 from the Northcott website.
