Robin Ince – Borderlines Book Festival


September 30, 2018


I’m a Joke And So Are You.

Why do we make the choices we do in life? Where does anxiety come from? Where does imagination come from? Why are we like we are? As a connoisseur of comedy, Robin Ince has spent decades mining our eccentricities to create gags – and watching other strange individuals do the same. And for years on The Infinite Monkey Cage he has sought – sometimes in vain – to understand the world around us. In his book, he unites these pursuits to examine the human condition through the prism of humour.

Robin Ince is co-presenter of the award-winning BBC Radio 4 show, The Infinite Monkey Cage. He has won the Time Out Outstanding Achievement in Comedy, was nominated for a British Comedy Award for Best Live show and has won three Chortle Awards. He has toured his stand-up across the world from Oslo to LA to Sydney, both solo and with his radio double-act partner, Professor Brian Cox.
