Robin Ince – Big Green Bookshop
December 6, 2018
We are delighted to welcome back comedian, writer and all round good person Robin Ince to the bookshop. He’ll be talking about, reading from and encouraging you to buy his brilliant new book “I’m a Joke and So Are You : A Comedian’s Take on What Makes Us Human”.
What better way to understand ourselves than through the eyes of comedians – those who professionally examine our quirks on stage daily? In this touching and witty book, award-winning presenter and comic Robin Ince uses the life of the stand-up as a way of exploring some of the biggest questions we all face. Where does anxiety come from? How do we overcome imposter syndrome? What is the key to creativity? How can we deal with grief? Informed by personal insights from Robin as well as interviews with some of the world’s top comedians, neuroscientists and psychologists, this is a hilarious and often moving primer to the mind.
But it is also a powerful call to embrace the full breadth of our inner experience – no matter how strange we worry it may be!
Robin will be chatting about the book and answering all the questions you throw at him (probably) and of course, you’ll be able to get a signed copy of the book too.
