ROBIN INCE : I’M A JOKE AND SO ARE YOU
A Comedian’s Take on What Makes Us Human
In Association with Brighton Science Festival http://www.brightonscience.com/
As a connoisseur of comedy, Robin Ince, stand-up comedian and presenter of Radio Four’s The Infinite Monkey Cage, has spent decades mining our eccentricities to create gags – and watching other strange individuals do the same. And for years he has sought – sometimes in vain – to understand the world around us. In this book, he unites these pursuits to examine the human condition through the prism of humour.
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? Do our parents f*&k us up? Informed by personal insights from his own life as well as interviews with a bevy of A-list comedians, neuroscientists, psychologists and doctors – this is a hilarious and often moving primer to the mind.
