Comedian, journalist, novelist and activist Rob Newman makes a hotly anticipated return to comedy with his first complete show in seven years.
Rob describes the 150-year controversy in evolutionary theory and explores how the latest science demonstrates that DNA is not destiny. From a Devil's Orchard made by lemon ants to female buffalo voting which way to go, Rob argues that co-operation drives evolution more than competition.
Says Rob: "Natural history is so full of freaky facts that when you tackle the complexity, you find that there is a wealth of detail, oodles of oddity which lend themselves to comedy."
In the past 20 years, Rob has performed five solo stand-up shows including From Caliban to The Taliban (500 years of Humanitarian Intervention) and Apocalypso Now. He has also written regularly for The Guardian and Vice magazine, and produced four novels, his most recent being The Trade Secret. His TV and radio credits include Robert Newman’s History of Oil (More4), History of the World Backwards (BBC Four), Newman & Baddiel In Pieces (BBC Two) and The Mary Whitehouse Experience (BBC Two).
