Book review: Neuropolis by Robert Newman

Oh no! Not another arena-filling comedian with a quasi-academic tome about neuroscience. I've only just finished Lee Evans on hippocampal Cb2 receptor gene expression and Roy 'Chubby' Brown on the lateral occipital sulcus.

Radio comedy can be such a turn-off

I try to fight it but the urge to tune away from Radio 4 at 6.30pm most weeknights is almost irresistible. This is odd. What I'm escaping is comedy and not only do I love comedy but a quick fix of it has become, these days, almost a necessity after listening to half an hour of news.

Robert Newman: 'Scientists think we're all stupid.'

The comedian tells us why Francis Crick, Brian Cox and Stephen Hawking are the butt of his jokes in his new book and radio series.
