[Perspectives] Newmanopolis

Comedian Robert Newman first came to prominence in the UK during the 1990s and readers of a certain age will remember how classrooms across the UK once abounded with his catchphrases. Newman subsequently largely rejected fame and reinvented himself as iconoclastic stand-up tackling complex subjects with wit and erudition. Whilst one of his early sketches—“History Today”—mocks scholars by having two elderly professors tirelessly trading playground insults, Newman has now graduated to challenging academics directly.
