-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).
