Stand-up Philosophy #3: ‘Time (and Memory)’

Tuesday 3rd July

Back for a third time at the Jeremy Bentham, this time our theme was ‘Time’. What is it? Could we ever travel backwards through it? And why is there never enough of it to both do the washing up AND go to the pub?

Featured Acts:

PAUL GANNON
Creator of ‘The Geekatorium’ (Leicester Square Theatre) “Deft characterisation…highly likely to make you laugh.” – ThreeWeeks
– arguing that even if time travel was possible, we shouldn’t do it – here’s a badly shot video of it!

GABRIEL MARTIN

Philosopher and writer
– warning us not to try stepping into rivers and explaining why time is impossible to talk about, as featured in this equally badly-shot video:

NAN CRAIG
Prizewinning Science Fiction author
– warning us to beware of the stories created by time and memory. Here’s the (still bad) video:

HENRY GINSBERG
Top comedian and star of TV’s ‘Stand-up Hero’. “Delightfully offbeat” – chortle.com
– Talking about the effect of the past on identity (Annoyingly the video ran out of memory…)

Hosted by CHARLIE DUNCAN SAFFREY
