Rob Newman

Rob Newman first shot to fame as part of The Mary Whitehouse Experience in the early 1990s, and then went on to perform with comedy partner David Baddiel. Over the past few years he's made a return to comedy with his own solo shows.

This 'work in progress' show will explore the history of western philosophy (not an obvious subject for comedy!), but we can already guess that it's going to be good because it's sprung from his BBC Radio 4 series Neuropolis.
