Alice Fraser: Ethos
Humans have always been fascinated by non-human minds. From the Golem, to Frankenstein's monster, to artificial intelligence – computers who could think, and threaten civilisation. Imagine an AI: a brilliant but naive mind, newly created. Now imagine that mind learning about our world by watching a comedy show. Alice Fraser (The Bugle and BBC Radio 4) explains our society of contradictions to a new robot mind. A silly, funny, smart show that explores what it is to be human. 'A life-changer' (EdinburghGuide.com). 'Inescapably funny' (Herald Sun). 'A sexy cerebral twist to comedy' *****(OUTinPerth).
Robin Ince: Chaos of Delight
An artist's manifesto of delight and curiosity from bohemians to black holes, Dali to DNA. A frenetic hour of art, science and stupid voices. Robin Ince, winner of Rose d'Or, Sony Gold and, most importantly, Pointless Celebrities. 'He's defined a generation of comics' (Stewart Lee). 'The Ince brain is like a black hole in a galaxy of knowledge. When it collides with another black hole – say the Fringe – the energy waves that are produced are perceived, by us, as "shows". **** (Scotsman).
