I’m a Joke and So Are You – Robin Ince and special guests

Join us for a very special live event to celebrate the launch of Robin Ince’s new book I’m a Joke and So Are You: A Comedian’s Take on What Makes Us Human.

Robin’s book is about why we become the humans we are and how best to cope with that, using himself and other comedians, including Tim Minchin, Noel Fielding, Sarah Kendall, Nina Conti, and many others, as the test subjects. It deals with birth, death, social anxiety and creativity among much more. Also through further conversations with therapists, neuroscientists, geneticists and anyone who really came within reach, he picks apart our existence.

In this very special one-off show, Robin will be performing stand-up based around these ideas and will be joined by some very special guests. Robin will be in conversation with both acclaimed comedian Stewart Lee and psychotherapist and author Philippa Perry live on stage, and there will also be performances from both his Book Shambles co-host, comedian Josie Long, and singer-songwriter Grace Petrie.
