TOURS:

Robin is taking a break from touring for a while. Read his reasoned case for the motion here. Robin Ince will return... and don't forget the Christmas shows. And benefits. And science specials. And cinema double bills.

Also, BBC 6 MUSIC: LAMACQ
Robin continues his regular appearances on the Steve Lamacq show, using his vast musical knowledge to profile a listener - cold reading put to good use.

And, you might find Robin at Old Rope some Mondays, (Twitter: @oldropecomedy).

TEARS OF A CLOWN
IPLAYER NOW AVAILABLE

How true is the image of the melancholy comedian? While the lives of Kenneth Williams, Tony Hancock and Spike Milligan are raked over with new books and documentaries appearing on a yearly basis, hundreds of comedians seemingly live and perform without facing anxiety that reaches clinical levels.

Is comedy just like every other profession, or is there a need for some loss or pain in childhood to create the outsider who wishes to spend each night making themselves face one of the top three fears of human beings, public speaking?

Find it here.
