Rob Newman’s Total Eclipse of DescartesThursday 22 November 2018
Standard: £16, Concessions: £13
In a world gone crazy, can philosophy help? This sparklingly brilliant new show tries to give you the answer.
Rob Newman (stand up legend, best-selling novelist, BBC Audio Drama Award 2017 winner) attempts to piece together a philosophy for our troubled times by sifting through 3000 years of thought: from Pythagoras to Artificial Intelligence by way of Pavlov’s dogs, Jane Goodall’s chimpanzees and Frankie Howerd’s trousers.
“He is the funniest comedian I have ever seen… A passionate, chaotically brilliant comedian.”
Praise for BBC Radio 4’s Total Eclipse of Descartes
“Intellectually charged and adorably ambitious… A delightfully digestible dose of brain food.” *****
The Times, 2018
“Gleefully jaunty and refreshingly intelligent… I loved it.” ****
