Robin Ince

Robin Ince is a middle aged man who began as a stand up when he was 22. He was runner up in So You Think You’re Funny after a few gigs, then increasingly wasted the 1990s doing stand up and drinking and playing bad pool in pubs around Brixton.

For stand up he has won three Chortle Awards, the Time Out Outstanding Achievement Award and was nominated for the British Comedy Awards Best Live show.

He co-presents a Radio 4 science show with Professor Brian Cox, tours solo shows about rational thinking, science and things that have made him tetchy and creatively produces live shows such as Nine Lessons and Carols for Godless People, The Book Club and Uncaged Monkeys.

His first book, Robin Ince’s Bad Book Club is available and most of his second one resides in his mind.

He has written for New Statesman, the Big Issue, Times Eureka magazine, Alan Moore’s Dodgem Logic, The Times, Daily Telegraph, Guardian Guide and others.

His regular radio appearances have included The News Quiz, Just a Minute and Loose Ends as well as presenting documentaries: Schrodinger's Cat and Vinyl Culture.

He has made many TV appearances on panel shows and Stand Up shows including The Review Show, The TV Book Club and many more.

He also co-wrote a feature film called Razzle Dazzle which opened the New York Children’s Film festival and did okay in Turkey.
