Robin Ince: The Importance of Being Interested

Award-winning comedian and science enthusiast Robin Ince follows up his Happiness Through Science show (The Lowry, May 2012) with a look at his favourite scientists – Charles Darwin and Richard Feynman.

Find out why we have eyebrows, why bald dogs have bad teeth, how heavy metal music makes pigs deaf and why spaghetti snaps into four pieces. It is a loving look into the minds of two giants of human imagination who changed our worldview. He’ll also stop off on the way to look at some of the more bizarre views of early science–is the ostrich really the offspring of the union of a gnat and a giraffe? (No).
