Robin Perkins: Comedy for the Curious

Thu Oct 8th 2020 to Mon Oct 26th 2020 at 20:30

Event Details

“a show that lends itself to on-the-spot thinking and an intelligent sense of humour”
-The Indiependent (about Comedy for the Curious)

Are you a curious person and love to laugh? Then you need to see the multi-award winning comic Robin Perkings who uses stand-up and science to understand life. This new show Comedy for Curious is for anyone with a brain and wants to use it. The show will be on zoom to allow for audience laughter and (optional) interaction. 

In a world where people want to know why, but also need a laugh, Sydney Fringe Comedy Award Winner Robyn Perkins covers both in her new stand-up, science chat show: Comedy for the Curious. This show looks into poignant subjects, exploring them through stand-up and science. In addition to Perkins’s science-comedy intro about the subject at hand, two non-scientific comedian guests deliver relevant sets, which is then followed by a chat. 

Topics being covered at the Brighton Fringe include: 

  • Why we Hate (Oct 8), 
  • Why we Love (Oct 11), 
  • All things WEED (Oct 13), 
  • Bisexuality (Oct 19),
  • The Autism Spectrum (Oct 26).
