EDINBURGH PREVIEWS WORKS IN PROGRESS £10 here
In April 2015, Robin Ince announced that he really had to stop doing stand up as he was on the cusp of insanity. Audience’s disagreed believing he’d breeched that cusp long ago. After spending 18 months touring with Professor Brian Cox and writing his new book, I”m A Joke…and So Are You, he realised it was time to start the trepanning again and returns with a new show. Inspired by Philip K Dick, Kurt Vonnegut and others, expect stories of aggressive kindness, rabies and death.
“bursting with energy and ideas” 4 stars – The Times.
presenter of BBC’s Rose d’Or Award Winning Infinite Monkey Cage gets excited about goats on canvas, matchstalk men and holes in pelvis bones in a show probably about art. Expect a frenetic hour where Robin tries to explain why he likes staring at art and the best overheard conversations in art galleries. From Georgia O Keeffe to Robert Rauschenberg via Stanley Spencer, Robin will attempt to translate the thoughts in his head into spoken words.
