Writing on the Wall

Rob Newman

Writing on the Wall are delighted to host Rob Newman's Philosophy Show, as part of their 2022 festival. Rob Newman's Philosophy Show sees the multi award-winning comedian weave together Nietzsche’s sunglasses, Showaddywaddy, Julius Caesar’s low traffic neighbourhoods, electric spiders and singing Neanderthals into a hilarious tour-de-force that offers hope for a changing world.

This new live show is a companion to Rob's BBC Radio 4 show, Half Full Philosophy Hour. His previous series, The Entirely Accurate Encyclopaedia of Evolution and Total Eclipse of Descartes won the BBC Audio Drama Awards for 'Best Comedy'. 

Rob has been writing and performing comedy for radio, television and stage since the late eighties, and has also written four novels and two non-fiction books.

‘Hugely entertaining, gleefully jaunty and refreshingly intelligent… I loved it.’
The Guardian

‘Intellectually charged and adorably ambitious…a delightfully digestible dose of brain food’
The Times
