"Gleefully jaunty and refreshingly intelligent… hugely entertaining." **** The Guardian

"Intellectually charged and adorably ambitious… a delightfully digestible dose of brain food." **** The Times

"Every time Rob Newman comes up with a new live show, it is beholden on all observers of comedy to pay attention. Not merely because of his great track record... but because he sets himself intellectual challenges beyond the grasp of many stand-up comedians, and produces material that genuinely forces audience to approach the world in a whole new way... this time around, in The Brain Show, he's delving into the inner recesses of his cerebellum with a performance that mixes hard fact with dizzying flights of comedic fantasy." The Guardian

"He is one amazing comedian" Time Out

"Has it ever struck you that some of the odd things which neurologists tell us about our brains may be, not just odd, but actually mistaken, pure superstitions, inventions thought up by excited scientists out of outdated philosophy? That is what, after careful digging, Robert Newman has been finding… Read him!" Mary Midgley

"A fantastic book!" Stuart Maconie, 6 Music

His new book Neuropolis - A Brain Science Survival Guide was adapted for Radio 4 this year as the series Rob Newman's Neuropolis, which follows on from Robert Newman's Entirely Accurate Encyclopaedia of Evolution, winner of the 2017 BBC Audio Drama Award for Best Scripted Comedy.
