The star of The Infinite Monkey Cage returns brings his first new solo show for three years to Lyme Regis’s Marine Comedy Club. Expect a hilarious night-out about love, death and art – with a teeny bit of physics.

In 2017 Robin completed a 70 date, record breaking tour with Brian Cox that concluded at the Wembley Arena. The Infinite Monkey Cage remains one of the most popular programmes on BBC Radio 4.

Robin’s new book, I’m a Joke…and So Are You is published in October 2018

Robin is the winner of a Sony Gold and Rose d’Or for the Infinite Monkey Cage and the Time Out Outstanding Contribution to Comedy, as well as The Francis Crick Science Journalism Award and 3 Chortle awards.
