About Rob Newman

Rob Newman is a British comedian and activist. Brought up in a small Hertfordshire village, he began his career as an impressionist. 

Newman has written six books with his latest being 2017's Neuropolis: A Brain Science Survial Guide.

Among Newman's recent awards, he won Best Scripted Comedy from BBC Audio Drama Awards in 2019 and Best Comedy With A Live Audience from BBC Audio Drama Awards in 2017.

Newman's last live show was A Total Eclipse Of Descartes.

Currently doing work in progress shows this spring, he's hitting the road on a UK tour with Philosophy in autumn 2020.  

In this all new show, the multi award-winning stand-up comic weaves together Nietzsche’s sunglasses, James Bond in Toxteth, electric spiders and singing Neanderthals into a hilarious tour-de-force that offers new hopes for a changing world. 

Note: Rob Newman’s Philosophy show coincides with the release of his BBC Radio 4 series.

"Hugely entertaining, gleefully jaunty and refreshingly intelligent… I loved it." ★★★★ – The Guardian (2018)

"He is one amazing comedian" – Time Out

"Intellectually charged and adorably ambitious…a delightfully digestible dose of brain food" – The Times (2018)
