With Edinburgh warm-up season now in full swing, we’re utterly spoiled for choice here in London when it comes to stand-up comedy and spoken word. But if you only have time for one preview and are looking for a good all-rounder, Robin Ince is the full package, promising a “manifesto of delight and curiosity” that should stretch your brain cells as well as splitting your sides. The award-winning star of The Infinite Monkey Cage and How to Build a Universe (Part 1) with Professor Brian Cox is consistently good value in his live appearances, with a rare ability to mash up art and science in endlessly pleasing ways.
Be among the first to see this new material from Ince in the pleasant surroundings of the BAC before it gets unleashed on the festival-going public. Tickets are priced at £10 and available here.
