Rob Newman is currently performing his latest stand-up show: "A New Theory Of Evolution." Following a packed out run at the Edinburgh Festival and a nationwide tour, this is the written companion to the show: an illustrated comedic book that combines his talents as a comedian and performer with his skill as a writer and novelist. "The Entirely Accurate Encyclopaedia of Evolution "will also be produced as a radio show to be broadcast by Radio 4 in November, 2015.
In this witty, fact-packed A-Z, Newman takes the reader on a whirlwind tour from caring, sharing vampire bats to intelligent slime-mold; from pacifist baboons to Richard Dawkins wrestling naked with his postman; from the invisibility cloak of the Hawaiian bobtail squid to Francis "DNA" Crick s belief that life on earth began with alien spaceships.
The only comedian ever credited in a paper published in the science journal "Nature," Newman explores how stunning scientific breakthroughs have turned received ideas of evolution upside-down."
