Robert Newman: The Brain Show

  • Little Theatre Wells, Somerset, BA5 2PS (map)

Tickets £10

After volunteering for a brain-imaging experiment meant to locate the part of the brain that lights up when you’re in love, Rob emerges with more questions than answers.

Can brain scans read our minds? Are we our brains? How can you map the mind?

The show includes a specially constructed MRI-hat that will record Robert’s real-time brain activity in the show. 

‘He is the funniest comedian I have ever seen… a passionate, chaotically brilliant comedian.’ The Sunday Times

‘I am completely in awe of Robert Newman. Of his talent, his passion, his intelligence, and the way he turns them to comedy with real firepower. If this world could be saved by a Superhero whose Superpower was Comedy, that hero would be Robert Newman.’ Kate Copstick, The Scotsman

‘You see that chink of gleaming light in the dark, overcast sky? That’s you that is.’ Daily Telegraph
