Robin Ince's Christmas Science Ghosts
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Erudite and hard-working wonder Robin Ince presents five nights of festive jollity with a bunch of his friends. Including his podcasting parter in crime, Josie Long, madcap Canadian Tony Law, iconoclast comedian Stewart Lee, 'Nevermind the Buzzcocks' star Phill Jupitus and ace character comic Jo Neary, with yet more names to be announced. Plus real life science boffs Ben Goldacre, Professor Steve Jones and Professor Jon Butterworth. Ince always likes to get geeky on stage, tackling everything from quantum physics to the world's worst books, and just because it's the run up to Christmas it doesn't mean he can't still do that. On Dec 15 Ince and guests will tackle the last 4,000 years of civilisation (no biggie); followed by a look back at childhood and how reality has met our expectations of 'the future' on Dec 16-17; then on Dec 20-21 Ince and co make general nonsense out of the past 50 years of the human imagination.
