Description

Rapper Baba Brinkman and neuroscientist Dr Heather Berlin follow up their sell-out Edinburgh hit Off the Top with an all-new collection of mind-blowing brain science, cerebral humour and experiments in live interactive freestyle rap. Can we learn to control our impulses before they control us? Even more importantly: can we learn to let them flow when it really matters? Impulses come easily to Baba, control comes easily to Heather. This is your brain on love, comedy and freestyle rhymes. 'Geek heaven' ***** (TheEdinburghReporter.co.uk). 'Wonderfully entertaining... An absolute jewel' ***** (MumbleComedy.net).

There's something so winningly goofy about this offering from rapper Baba Brinkman and his neuroscientist wife Dr Heather Berlin.
