School For Gifted Children.

Last night I went to Robin Ince's School For Gifted Children at the Roundhouse. The line-up of Scientists/Comedians/Broadcasters/Musicians was a dream come true and included Andrew Collings, Marcus Chown, Natalie Haynes, Gavin Osborn and Simon Singh.

Andrew Collings taught us all how to "Secret Dance" while on public transport. He was joined by an audience member, Rose, for a brilliant display of physical comedy. Marcus Chown didn't disappoint (loved his set at 400 Billion Stars too), he gave a recount of Scientists and the awards he thinks they should have one (very funny stuff!).

Gavin Osborn, Natalie Haynes, Simon Singh and Robin Ince were all on fine form and I absolutley adored Mr Ince's material about trying to find out how his son's mind works.

After last night i'm already looking forward to 9 Lessons And Carols For Godless People.

A thought.

Is it a little bit sad to sit outside a venue and get extremly excited as all the performers arrive? I so do that.
