Uncut / Imperfect

Join Extras star and 'wobbly' stand-up Francesca Martinez (she hates the term cerebral palsy!) and Robin Ince for a night of revelry and revelation.

Francesca regularly performs her unique and hilarious brand of comedy to medics and healthcare professionals across the UK. Tackling everything from nervous doctors to CP and PC, she challenges perceptions and prejudice like no one else.

Robin Ince has produced numerous science-themed stand-up shows including BBC Four's Nerdstock - Nine Lessons and Carols for Godless People, which featured Richard Dawkins, Ben Goldacre and Simon Singh (restaged for See Further). A regular face on TV, and one of the most intelligent and challenging comedians in the country, Robin has won a string of awards for his live shows and regularly supports Ricky Gervais on his national tours.

Catch their eye-opening show at Southbank Centre for one night only.

"She has cerebral palsy, he's a rationalist. If that doesn't sound funny, you're in for a surprise (and a good laugh)." - New Scientist

Also part of Southbank Centre's London Literature Festival.
