Yianni Agisilaou: I, Human (A-List Entertainment and Serious Comedy)

By | Published on Wednesday 15 August 2018

Delving into the unnerving world of robots and AI, and our complex relationship with them, Yianni’s show this year is another cracker. In an erudite commentary on our reliance on technology, he picks apart the things we take for granted and pokes fun at the surprisingly sneaky and sometimes dumb things they do. He’s taken the time to ask the questions that we probably all should, and wrapped it up in this wonderful hour of stand up. He clearly loves that it’s our flaws as humans that are what make us special: that despite its apparent superiority, technology can never imitate our foibles as conscious beings. Thought-provoking, surprisingly educational and intrinsically funny, it’s another quality helping of the sharp social commentary that Yianni does so well.

Pleasance Dome, until 26 Aug.
