'When someone writes the history of modern comedy, they should make room for Robin Ince.' Guardian

The Cosmic Shambles Network are pleased to announce that, due to public demand, Robin Ince will be adding an extra thirteen dates to his hugely popular Chaos of Delights tour this November.

'Alchemic mix of enthusiasm, knowledge and observation” ***** Scotsman

In this joyous artist's manifesto of delight and curiosity Robin mashes up the two cultures of art and science and combines them with a bunch of silly voices in a celebration of the human mind, from Bohemians to Black Holes, Dali to DNA. Another of his much-loved stand up sort of lectures and the perfect antidote to the world around us.

'The high priest of the curios… A celebration… You'll emerge informed, educated – and probably validated too.' Chortle

Robin Ince is a multiple award winning comedian best known for co-hosting the international smash hit, Rose D’Or and Sony Award winning BBC Radio 4 and podcast series, The Infinite Monkey Cage, with Professor Brian Cox and the acclaimed Book Shambles podcast with Josie Long.

He has been the co-curator and host of some of the most acclaimed live science shows and tours in the UK including Nine Lessons and Carols for Curious People, Brian and Robin’s Christmas Compendium of Reason and the hugely popular Space Shambles at the Royal Albert Hall, which he co-hosted with Astronaut Chris Hadfield. This year he is also on a world tour with Professor Brian Cox as part of the show Universal and they have recently finished a sell out arena tour of the UK and Ireland.

Robin’s book I’m a Joke and So Are You was published in October. As well as attaining some great reviews it was also nominated for The Chortle Book Award.
