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.

“Intellectually charged and adorably ambitious… A delightfully digestible dose of brain food.” ***** The Times, 2018

Rob Newman (stand up legend, best-selling novelist, Radio 4 Sony Award Winner) 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.

“Gleefully jaunty and refreshingly intelligent… I loved it.” ****The Guardian, 2018

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