I’m a Joke and So Are You
Reflections on Humour and Humanity
What better way to understand ourselves than through the eyes of comedians – those who professionally examine our quirks on stage? In this touching and witty book, award-winning presenter and comic Robin Ince uses the life of the stand-up as a way of exploring some of the biggest questions we all face. Where does anxiety come from? How do we overcome imposter syndrome? What is the key to creativity? How can we deal with grief? Informed by personal insights as well as interviews with some of the world’s top comedians, neuroscientists and psychologists, this is a hilarious and often moving primer to the mind.
“Joyfully entertaining. Full of warmth, wisdom and affectionate delight in the wonder and absurdity of being human.” — The Observer.
“Funny, honest and heart-warming.” — Matt Haig.
Meet Robin Ince on Tuesday 16 May at 7.30 pm at The Wanstead Tap
