Topic: Robert Newman's "A Total Eclipse of Descarte".
If you've seen any of Robert Newman's comedy since the turn of the century you will know what sort of thing he serves up. It's kind of like a school master telling the slow class things that he can't believe they don't know already. His clever kind of humour is fine if you like it (me, for instance) but if not you will think that he's crawled up his own intellectual arse (wife, for instance).
I did get most of the philosophy/classical references which helped follow his dialogue but the wife didn't and fell asleep in the second half. The audience looked to be well off, over 50, educated Boden/Racing Green clad bods mixed with older new-age types. Not sure if that's relevant to anything, but there was definitely a theme there.
So there you go. If you already know what he does and like it then go see it, but make sure you go with other intellectuals so you have someone to discuss it with. If you don't then stick to your box set and stay home.
