Timeline of Robert Newman


In April 2017 his book Neuropolis is published by Harper Collins.


In 2015, his BBC Radio 4 programme Robert Newman’s Entirely Accurate Encyclopaedia of Evolution attempted to challenge some of the concepts of Richard Dawkins’s book The Selfish Gene. It won the Best Scripted Comedy with a Live Audience award at the 2017 BBC Audio Drama Awards

In 2015 his book The Entirely Accurate Encyclopaedia of Evolution, based on his stand-up show “Robert Newman’s New Theory of Evolution”, was published by Freight Books.


Newman’s process of writing the book was the subject of a 2008 BBC Two television documentary entitled Scribbling.


In 2006 Newman performed a new show, No Planet B or, The History of the World Backwards, at the Tricycle Theatre in Kilburn, north-west London. In 2007, the BBC commissioned a six-part series, The History of the World Backwards based on No Planet B, for transmission on BBC Four. The script of the stage version show is accessible on Newman’s official website.


His later work is characterised by a very strong political element and parallels the work of contemporaries such as Mark Thomas. In 2001, with actress Emma Thompson, he called for a boycott of the Perrier Comedy Award, because Perrier is owned by Nestlé; an alternative competition called the Tap Water Awards was set up the following year. In 2003 Newman toured with From Caliban to the Taliban, which was released on CD and DVD. In 2005 the show Apocalypso Now or, from P45 to AK47, how to Grow the Economy with the Use of War debuted at the Bongo Club during the 2005 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Apocalypso Now toured nationally, sometimes as part of a double-bill where Newman was joined by Mark Thomas. The show was filmed at the Hoxton Hall in Hoxton, east London and shown on More4 under the title A History of Oil, with a later release on CD and DVD. A mixture of stand-up comedy and introductory lecture on geopolitics and peak oil, in Apocalypso Now Newman argues that twentieth-century Western foreign policy, including World War I, should be seen as a continuous struggle by the West to control Middle Eastern oil. Newman draws from Richard Heinberg’s book The Party’s Over: Oil, War, and the Fate of Industrial Societies as source material for portions of the show dealing with peak oil.


He has written four novels: Dependence Day (1994); Manners (1998); The Fountain at the Centre of the World (2003); and The Trade Secret (2013).


In 1993, Newman and his then comedy partner David Baddiel became the first comedians to play and sell out the 12,000-seat Wembley Arena in London. Newman’s first speaking appearance was with Third World First (now known as People and Planet), the student political organisation.


Newman co-wrote The Mary Whitehouse Experience Encyclopedia (1991), with David Baddiel, Hugh Dennis, and Steve Punt.


After the break-up, the two men took wildly differing career paths. While Baddiel became part of the “new lad” phenomenon of the mid-1990s, fronting shows like Fantasy Football League, Newman largely disappeared from public life, reappearing with solo work marked by a clear social conscience and anti-establishment views. He covered the anti-globalisation Seattle protests of 1999 for the UKs Channel 4 News. He has been politically active with Reclaim the Streets, the Liverpool Dockers, Indymedia and People’s Global Action.


Newman began his comedy career as an impressionist in the late 1980s before gaining fame when he appeared alongside fellow Cambridge alumni David Baddiel, Hugh Dennis and Steve Punt in the BBC radio and TV programme The Mary Whitehouse Experience (1989–92). The title referred to the main campaigner for “moral decency” on television, Mary Whitehouse. With The Mary Whitehouse Experience Newman and Baddiel had become “unlikely pin-ups as, in the early 1990s, comedy was being fêted as ‘the new rock and roll’,” leading to their own series, Newman and Baddiel in Pieces (1993).


Robert “Rob” Newman (born 7 July 1964) is a British comedian, author and political activist. Newman first found fame with The Mary Whitehouse Experience before forming a successful comedy partnership with David Baddiel in the early 1990s.
