Following sell-out performances at Edinburgh and across the UK in 2014, comedian Rob Newman is back on the road with his brand new show, The Brain Show,

And he will be at The Leadmill in Sheffield next week.

In The Brain Show, Rob takes a sceptical approach to some grand claims made by neuroscience.

Can brain scans read our minds? How can you map the mind? If each brain has more connections than there are atoms in the universe, then how big will a map of the brain have to be?

Seeking answers to these questions, The Brain Show explores everything from the thought-processes of stripy spiders to the neurobiology of romantic love, and from Alan Turing in a fortune-teller’s tent to Isaac Newton having a meltdown at a county fair.

Rob Newman is at The Leadmill on Tuesday, February 16.
