Based on his hit Edinburgh show, The Ape That Got Lucky is Chris Addison's first series of comic lectures for BBC Radio 4, in which the thinking idiot's pretend anthropologist takes on human evolution. Mr and Mrs H. Sapiens like to think of themselves as rather special, yet we share 98% of our DNA with chimps. That's why we have so much in common with them. We both look undignified on a bouncy castle, for example. In this series, Chris takes the listener on a journey through the vast and rich subject of human development, explaining how we fluked Top Species status and asking the listener if they're a man or monkey. Accompanying him is renowned expert and noted polymath Professor Austin Herring (Geoff McGivern) and the whole thing is illustrated verbally by noted actors and renowned gadabouts Jo Enright and Dan Tetsell.Show more
Based on his Perrier-nominated Edinburgh hit show of 2004, Chris Addison's Civilization is a comedy lecture series for Radio 4. It neatly follows on from Chris's first Radio 4 series, The Ape That Got Lucky. Western Civilization, like many very old things, is pretty much on its last legs. And if Western Civilization as we know it is dying sooner rather than later, we're going to have to build ourselves a new one. And how are we going to do that, then? Chris Addison's Civilization explores exactly what we need to create a new, shinier, betterer civilisation (apart from planning permission - that's obvious). Accompanying Chris on his journey is noted expert and renowned polymath Professor Austin Herring (Geoff McGivern). Dan Tetsell and Jo Enright are also on hand to illustrate the jokes, stories, wild conjecturing, half-truths and even facts that make up the lectures.Show more
