TIDDLY TALK: PROFESSOR ADRIAN FURNHAM

Professor Adrian Furnham MSc DPhil Dsc DLitt delivers something akin to a TED Talk - a TIDDLY Talk - if you will on the psychology of humour – why does it exist, what does it achieve and what makes something funny?  He’ll be discussing his findings with us. And a comedian or two.

TWEEDY: SYMPHONY

'The brilliant Tweedy, a circus clown and true genius had the audiences crying with laughter' The Independent

No matter what he does, Tweedy seems to get into a mess, but to the delight of audiences of all ages he can always find a creative way to get out of it. 

 

MARK STEEL

This time last year, it seemed highly unlikely the UK would vote to leave the EU; Donald Trump was a buffoon who surely wasn’t going to beat Hilary Clinton and Mark was living the married suburban ideal, a year later everything has changed!  But don’t worry, as Mark thinks Every Little Thing’s Gonna Be Alright.

 

QUARTER LIFE CRISIS

Alicia is a hot mess. She doesn’t know what she’s doing with her life.  Everyone around her seems to know where they’re going in life, but she’s trying to find ways to cheat growing up and keep her 16-25 railcard.

What does it mean to be an adult, and when do you become one? Quarter Life Crisis mixes addictive basslines, spoken word and audience participation.

 

TOM ALLEN: ABSOLUTELY

The sharply dressed, well-spoken, disparagingly camp son of working class Bromley, Tom Allen embarks on his debut solo tour this autumn.

‘riotous stuff, perfectly delivered’ ★★★★ Scotsman
