Carl Sagan Is My God, Oh And Richard Feynman Too (Robin Ince / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Sunday 14 August 2011

It’s a common misconception that science doesn’t sit well with music, magic or even comedy. So the fact that Robin Ince is performing a science-comedy show every day of August – and that he invites musicians, mind-readers and stand-ups to help – disproves this outdated theory. Jokes are loosely based on scientific themes but humour isn’t exclusive or alienating, especially from Ince. He reads, rants and invites on-stage three different acts every day, acting like a frantic science teacher wildly enamoured by the complexities of the universe. The fact that all of this is free means that it is subject to a kind of natural selection, and one in which it will not only survive, but thrive.

The Canons’ Gait, 5 – 28 Aug (not 18), 12.10pm (1.00pm), free, fpp54.
