Comedian and science presenter Robin Ince joins us to talk about his new book, I’m a Joke and So Are You, an investigation of the human condition that blends memoir, wit and popular science.

As a connoisseur of comedy, Robin has spent decades mining our eccentricities to create gags – and watching other strange individuals do the same. And for years on The Infinite Monkey Cage he has sought – sometimes in vain –  to understand the world around us. In this book, he unites these pursuits to examine the human condition through the prism of humour.

Robin is co-presenter of the award-winning BBC Radio 4 show The Infinite Monkey Cage, and has won the Time Out Outstanding Achievement in Comedy Award.

Chaired by Caroline Dower, Durham University
