Catch Rob Newman as he tries out new material for the next series of his BBC Radio 4 stand-up philosophy show Total Eclipse of Descartes.

Based on the hit BBC Radio 4 series, this comedy show continues to explore 3000 years of good and bad ideas from Pythagoras to driverless cars, by way of levitating Buddhist monks, Pavlov’s dogs, Jean-Paul Sartre’s mum, T. Rex, and Morrissey. 

In a world gone crazy, can philosophy help?

★★★ ‘Hugely entertaining, gleefully jaunty and refreshingly intelligent… I loved it.’

The Guardian

‘He is one amazing comedian’

Time Out

‘Intellectually charged and adorably ambitious…a delightfully digestible dose of brain food’
