NEXT LONDON SHOW: TUESDAY 5th FEBRUARY 2019 AT THE BILL MURRAY, ANGEL

STAND-UP PHILOSOPHY: ‘EMOTION’

How do you feel about another great Stand-up Philosophy show on February 5th? Happy? Excited? Afraid? Well whatever emotions you’re feeling, it’s what’s happening…

What even are emotions anyway, and why are they important? How much value should we put on other people’s emotions? What do we learn from emotions like fear, guilt and shame? And when Whitney Houston sang that love was a ‘second-hand emotion’, why didn’t she tell us which second-hand shop we could actually buy these cut-price pre-used emotions from?

Answering these and other questions will be…

GRAINNE MAGUIRE! (TV show panellist, BBC writer and top stand-up)

CHELSEA BIRKBY! (Finalist of the prestigious ‘So You Think You’re Funny’ competion)

ALEX MASON! (Writer, comedian and SUP legend)

And CHARLIE DUNCAN SAFFREY! (Philosopher, lecturer and SUP host)

Come along if you’re curious!
