Stand up Philosophy- Alex Farrow, October 3rd 2019

From: Comedian, Alex Farrow:


Dear Newcastle Philosophy Dept

I’m doing a stand-up show in Newcastle all about Philosophy Oct 3rd!

A stand-up comedy show about education, religion and modern Britain told through the stories of teaching philosophy to teenagers. ‘Honest and interesting and really, very, very funny indeed’ ‘Jaw-achingly funny’  ★★★★★ (Oxford Times).

If you like the sound of that then I’d love some experts and/or keen students to enjoy it too. (Let me know and I’ll organise some complimentary tickets)

Best wishes,


What do you see? Frames of perception, Claudia Rankine and Serena Williams (Philosophical Society Lecture), Prof. Tina Chanter, Newcastle University, Tuesday 29 October 2019, 17:30 – 18:45
