Jonathan Miller appearing at this event

Co-creator of the seminal comedy revue Beyond The Fringe, Jonathan Miller's writing helped launch the careers of Peter Cook, Dudley Moore and Alan Bennett. His talents and interests encompass many areas, from neuropsychology to the arts, atheism, criticism and comedy. Rarely a man to say no, Sir Jonathan says that his reputation as a polymath rests on 'being pathetically susceptible to someone knocking on my door with a frisbee in their hand saying Do you want to come out and play?' Jonathan Miller is also available for after-dinner speaking, work as a presenter and hosting awards and conferences.
