Robert Newman’s Total Eclipse of Descartes

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

Rob Newman (stand up legend, best-selling novelist, Winner BBC Audio Drama Award 2017) 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.

Winner: Best Comedy With A Live Audience, BBC Audio Drama Awards, 2017

Gleefully jaunty and refreshingly intelligent… hugely entertaining – ⭐⭐⭐⭐ The Guardian 2018

Intellectually charged and adorably ambitious… a delightfully digestible dose of brain food – ⭐⭐⭐⭐The Times 2018
