Robin Ince: Sunday

His stand up show ‘Robin Ince’s One Man Book Club’ is perfect Hay fodder.  He ploughs through an eclectic collection of books scattered across the stage reading excerpts and describing why he loves, hates, or is amused, fascinated or intrigued by them.  There are women’s books ‘What Does God do When Women Pray’ (it turns out not quite as much)  to “proper man’s books….grrr” like ‘The Secrets of Picking Up Sexy Girls’.

Free flowing, fast moving and clearly partly improvised Ince wrenched real belly laughter from the audience.  This is truly original stuff and whilst it fits the Festival perfectly you wouldn’t need to have literary leaning to appreciate Robin’s take of the sometimes bizarre nature of books.
