Robin Ince Is As Dumb As You: Pleasance Courtyard, Edinburgh, 2005
After Hours Comedy: Pleasance Dome, Edinburgh, 2009
Robin Ince is an English comedian, actor and writer. To date, I have seen him perform twice at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In his show Robin Ince Is As Dumb As You in 2005, he explored the world through reading books and featured all manner of varied topics from cannibalism to otters. His mind was immense with pointless but amusing information and developed the literal knowledge to progress the theory that the universe is becoming more ridiculous. Ince’s delivery as with the twenty-minute slot that I saw at the After Hours comedy showcase in 2009 was an ironic, clever examination of the state of the nation.
