Robin's first new stand up show in three years is a clash of the two cultures, a joyous romp through his favourite artists and strangest scientific ideas. From the work of Stanley Spencer to Niels Bohr, it is 90 minutes fizzing with ideas about creativity in science and art, as well as asking why we believe we see what we see and why we believe what we believe. In 2017 Robin completed a 70 date, record breaking tour with Brian Cox that concluded at the Wembley Arena. Robin's new book, I'm a Joke... and So Are You (Atlantic books) is also available at all good book stores. Robin is the winner of a Sony Gold and Rose d'Or for the Infinite Monkey Cage and the Time Out Outstanding Contribution to Comedy, as well as The Francis Crick Science Journalism Award and 3 Chortle awards.
