Robin Ince: Pragmatic Insanity

Thursday, 10 May, 2018
Matcham Auditorium, Theatre Royal Wakefield
Robin Ince: Pragmatic Insanity

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 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.
