A tale I heard
Poet, writer, comedian, actor, performer, Rob Auton on being described as 'The Brian Cox of comedy':
"I think that came from an interview I was doing next to a river. I saw a Mallard and said 'look at that Mallard'. Maybe it’s more to do with me trying to stay excited by the planet and being open to things amazing me.
I’m determined to stay awake. I hate going to bed. I’m fascinated by time and what we do with it and what we don’t do with it. There’s a lot of humour to be found in how one spends their time. I don’t know much about science but I love looking at the sky and faces and the fact I know what a clock is and a cat doesn’t."
