“If the Royal Variety Show was put in a matter transportation machine with the Royal Institution Christmas lectures, this is what you’d get” – Robin Ince.
Robin Ince is the comedian you might know as the co-presenter of BBC Radio’s The Infinite Monkey Cage with physicist Brian Cox, the creator of stage-show and author of Bad Book Club: One Man’s Quest to Uncover the Books That Taste Forgot or even the creator of the Australian feature movie Razzle Dazzle.
I spoke to him after he returned from Alom Shaha’s booklaunch for The Young Atheist’s Handbook, about science, comedy and how he brings them together to make shows like Nine Lessons And Carols For Godless People and his most recent tour, Happiness Through Science.
