Robin Ince

Robin Ince

Details

A lonely boy sat in graveyards waiting for zombies, predicted to be a serial killer by his sisters, grew up to be a comedian. Robin Ince spends an hour celebrating the horror films and stories that were his solace as a misfit child. Robin Ince, winner of Rose d'Or, Sony Gold Award and, most importantly, Pointless Celebrities.

I’m a Joke and So Are You (Book Talk)

What better way to understand ourselves than through the eyes of comedians - those who professionally examine our quirks on stage daily? Join the star of the Rose D’Or and Sony Gold winning The Infinite Monkey Cage Robin Ince as he talks about his touching and witty book. Robin uses the life of the stand-up as a way of exploring some of the biggest questions we all face. Where does anxiety come from? How do we overcome imposter syndrome? What is the key to creativity? How can we deal with grief? Informed by personal insights from Robin as well as interviews with some of the world's top comedians, neuroscientists and psychologists, this is a hilarious and often moving primer to the mind. But it is also a powerful call to embrace the full breadth of our inner experience - no matter how strange we worry it may be!
