Following the massive Winter Droving, a last treat from Eden Arts in 2014 – more top comedy – get along if you can and say hello to us, (the last one sold out mind….)

Comedy fans are in for a rare treat next weekend as comedian Rob Newman of ‘Newman & Baddiel’ fame comes to Rheged as part of his New Theory of Evolution tour.

Newman sprang into the limelight in the 90’s with The Mary Whitehouse Experience and his comedy partnership with David Baddiel. His solo career followed with a clear social agenda and a attention on political activism.

This tour marks a hotly anticipated return to comedy for the comedian, journalist and novelist with his first complete show in 7 years.

Rob describes the 150-year controversy in evolutionary theory and explores how the latest science demonstrates that DNA is not destiny. From a Devil’s Orchard made by lemon ants, to female buffalo voting which way to go, from Prince Kropotkin escaping a Tsarist dungeon to altruistic vampire bats and Richard Dawkins’ postman wrestling naked, Rob Newman argues that cooperation drives evolution more than competition.

Rob said: “Natural history is so full of freaky facts that when you tackle the complexity, you find that there is a wealth of detail, oodles of oddity which lend themselves to comedy.”

Eden Arts, who organise the comedy nights, are delighted to bring this tour to Rheged “It’s fantastic for local audiences to get access to national comedy right on their doorstep. Rob Newman has a massive following. The recent Mark Thomas show was a huge success and we expect this show to be a big hit too.” Says Eden Arts Director Adrian Lochhead.

Rob Newman’s New Theory of Evolution shows at Rheged on 28th November at 8pm. Tickets are £12.50 and £10. To book tickets please call 01768 868000 or email enquiries.
