Robert Newman’s Total Eclipse of Descartes


In a world gone crazy, can philosophy help? This sparklingly brilliant new show tries to give you the answer. 

Rob Newman (stand up legend, best-selling novelist, Radio 4 Sony Award Winner) attempts to piece together a philosophy for our troubled times by sifting through 3000 years of thought: from Pythagoras to Artificial Intelligence by way of Pavlov’s dogs, Jane Goodall’s chimpanzees and Frankie Howerd’s trousers.

Age 14+ Only


This event is part of Norwich Science Festival 2018.


“Intellectually charged and adorably ambitious... A delightfully digestible dose of brain food.” The Times

 “Gleefully jaunty and refreshingly intelligent... I loved it.” The Guardian

"I am completely in awe of Robert Newman. Of his talent, his passion, his intelligence, and the way he turns them to comedy with real firepower. If this world could be saved by a Superhero whose Superpower was Comedy, that hero would be Robert Newman." Kate Copstick, Scotsman
