‘One Life’ with Tony Hawks, Steve Cross, Tim Renkow and The London Humanist Choir

June 24th, 2017 7:30 PM   --   10:00 PM

'One Life' is The London Humanist Choir's annual celebration of all things humanist, with singing, science, comedy, and indeed quite a lot more singing.

Special guests include TV and radio comedian and bestselling author Tony Hawks; comedian and host of Science 'Show Off' Steve Cross; and Tim Renkow, comedian and star of 'A Brief History of Tim'.

Settle back for an evening full of laughter, entertainment, and song.

Please note that the bar opens at 18:30, and the show begins at 19:30.

Tony Hawks

Tony is the author of the bestseller Round Ireland with a Fridge - the story of his absurd quest to hitch round the circumference of Ireland within a month... with a fridge. After being serialised on Radio 4, the book became a top 10 Sunday Times bestseller.  Tony has written five other books and is a frequent guest on TV in QI, Have I Got News For You, They Think It’s All Over, A Bit of Fry and Laurie and Red Dwarf . He’s a regular guest on Radio 4’s Just a Minute, and I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue and The Unbelievable Truth.

Tony recently produced and starred in the film versions of his two books Round Ireland With A Fridge and Playing the Moldovans at Tennis – with all profits going to The Tony Hawks Centre for children with cerebral palsy in Chisinau, Moldova.

Tim Renkow

American-born comedian Tim Renkow has been making quite a name for himself over here in recent years. He’s won the title of Leicester Square New Comedian Of The Year, been nominated for Best Newcomer at the Chortle Awards and won the Amused Moose Laugh Off Award. And, as his publicity notes, he has also been awarded severe cerebral palsy, by God.

Cerebral palsy is a neurological condition that affects the part of the brain responsible for controlling muscles. As Tim explains, 'I did comedy because it’s the only thing physically I can do, all I can do is talk'.

Tim has been a hit on the stand-up circuit, but his semi-autobiographical comedy ‘A Brief History of Tim’ is about to bring him to the attention of a much wider audience. Having already aired as a 15-minute short, the BBC snapped up a series, now in production for broadcast later this year.

Steve Cross

If you were thinking that Science-geek Steve Cross would added much needed gravitas to our One Life show, think again. Steve is the founder of Science Showoff – ‘a chaotic open mic night for scientists, science communicators, science teachers, historians and philosophers of science, students, science popularisers and anyone else with something to show off about science.’

We’re delighted Steve has agreed to compere for us once again – and he’s also promised to spend time sharing snippets of his scientific knowledge with us – so be prepared to come away with your brain expanded in unexpected
directions. You have been warned!
