See Ruby Wax live on stage with her brand new show, with a little help from a monk and a neuroscientist.
Following a huge, sell-out UK and Ireland tour of her one-woman show Frazzled, the much-loved comedian, author and campaigner Ruby Wax returns to the stage this Autumn with a brand-new show. Based on her latest bestselling book, How to be Human: The Show will answer every question you've ever had about evolution, thoughts, emotions, the body, addictions, relationships, sex, kids, the future and compassion.
We can’t stop the future from arriving, no matter what drugs we’re on. But even if nearly every part of us becomes robotic, mechanical fingers crossed we’ll still have our minds. Hopefully we’ll use them for things like compassion, instead of just chasing what ’s ‘better ’ like a hamster on a wheel. If we can do that, we’re on the yellow brick road to happiness.
With a little help from monk Gelong Thubten, who explains how the mind works, and neuroscientist Ash Ranpura who explains where everything that makes us ‘us’ can be found in the brain. Outrageously witty and smart, How to be Human is the show you need to help you upgrade your mind as much as you’ve upgraded your iPhone.
Ruby Wax is a much-loved U.S. born comedy-actor-writer of incredibly successful books and TV shows including script editor of “Absolutely Fabulous”. She has a Master ’s degree in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy from Oxford University. Her latest bestselling book, How to be Human: The Manual, written with the help of the monk and the neuroscientist, is out now.
