Robin Ince

Robin Ince is many things. A comedian, an author, a broadcaster and a populariser of scientific ideas. The Guardian once declared him a “becardiganed polymath” which seems about right.

He is probably best known as the co-host of the Sony Gold Award winning BBC Radio 4 series The Infinite Monkey Cage with Professor Brian Cox.

As a stand-up he has toured the world and won three Chortle Awards, the Time Out Outstanding Achievement Award and was nominated for the British Comedy Awards Best Live show.

The Guardian once wrote that, “when someone writes a history of modern comedy, they should make room for Robin Ince” and of his latest show The Scotsman described it as an “alchemic mix of enthusiasm, knowledge and observation.”

He has created, curated, pioneered and hosted numerous nights mixing science, music and comedy at some of the most celebrated venues around the world from the Hammersmith Apollo and the Royal Albert Hall in London to the Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto and The Opera House in Wellington.

His brainchild Nine Lessons and Carols for Curious People continues to sell out theatres every year, over a decade after its first appearance, and in 2022 he embarked on a world tour of arenas with Professor Brian Cox.

He is, with only the scientifically-appropriate amount of doubt, comedy’s finest and funniest intellectual Renaissance man.

Plus support from Keith Farnan, Sharon Wanjohi and MC Ben Van der Velde
