In a world gone crazy, can philosophy help? This sparklingly brilliant new show tries to give you the answer.

‘He is the funniest comedian I have ever seen…A passionate, chaotically brilliant comedian.’ Sunday Times

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 3000 years of thought: from Pythagoras to Artificial Intelligence by way of Pavlov’s dogs, Jane Goodall’s chimpanzees and Frankie Howerd’s trousers.

‘I am completely in awe of Robert Newman. Of his talent, his passion, his intelligence, and the way he turns them to comedy with real firepower. If this world could be saved by a Superhero whose Superpower was Comedy, that hero would be Robert Newman.’  Kate Copstick, Scotsman
