About

for some reason I never got around to writing anything under “About”, so here is a brief summary. I am a middle aged man who began as a stand up when I was 22. I was runner up in So You Think You’re Funny after a few gigs, then increasingly wasted the 1990s doing stand up and drinking and playing bad pool in pubs around Brixton. I now co-present a Radio 4 science show with Professor Brian Cox, tour solo shows about rational thinking, science and things that have made me tetchy and creatively produce live shows such as Nine Lessons and Carols for Godless People, The Book Club and Uncaged Monkeys. My first book, Robin Ince’s Bad Book Club is available and most of my second one resides in my mind. I also co-wrote a feature film called Razzle Dazzle which opened the New York Children’s Film festival and did okay in Turkey. I have written for New Statesman, the Big Issue, Times Eureka magazine, Alan Moore’s Dodgem Logic, The Times, Daily Telegraph, Guardian Guide and so on. robinince.com is where you’ll find my tour dates and the like.

    (not related to anything on your blog, but i couldnt find your email address) I recall in your stand up you tell of your experiences on some everybody-gets-a-say-opinion-chat-show with Vanessa Feltz, and your deep frustration with the calibre of discussion. I have always wondered what one of those shows would be like if the audience wasn’t almost completely composed of morons, and the host could guide a logical sequence of argument. If you haven’t already seen this I thought you might appreciate it for contrast… http://www.justiceharvard.org/

    Hello. I was in the audience for the recording of “Wordaholics” this evening.I enjoyed your imput! The treacle in the hair reference you made was to the wonderful film “A Matter of Life and Death”…!Is there really a Powell and Pressburger box set? – I would certainly love that!
