Rob Newman: Total Eclipse of Descartes

28-29 June, 5-6 July

[Work in Progress]

Rob tries out new material for the next series of his BBC Radio 4 stand-up philosophy show Total Eclipse of Descartes.

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, Radio 4 Sony Award Winner) attempts to piece together a philosophy for our troubled times by sifting through three thousand years of thought: from Pythagoras to Artificial Intelligence by way of Pavlov’s dogs, Jane Goodall’s chimpanzees and Frankie Howerd’s trousers.

“Hugely entertaining, gleefully jaunty and refreshingly intelligent… I loved it.”  The Guardian

“He is one amazing comedian”  Time Out

“Dazzling shafts of wit”  The Times
