Review | Laura Money
We make approximately 10,000 Decisions every day. No wonder we’re exhausted by the time we go to bed! US comedian, Robyn Perkins is here to help you make some of those decisions easier. It’s an interesting premise – the self-confessed most useless person at making a decision (to the point she has literally gone hungry in restaurants) aiding us, but Perkins has the (pseudo) science to back it up!
Perkins used to be a biologist but now spends her time making people laugh and I for one, am glad she made the switch. Sorry ecosystems – we need this funny-lady more than you. No-one is more aware of the need for laughter than Perkins herself – an American in London – what a sucker for punishment.
The show is educational as Perkins gives you a crash course in neuroscience and how the brain goes about making a decision. She is hilarious! Self-depreciating but not self-hating, Perkins’ inability to decide in love, lust, food – thankfully not politics – will probably scrape close to the bone – Perkins is all of us.
As a comedian, she is great at getting an audience on side but it feels so much more than that. Perkins is conversational and honest, she is just like that funny friend who comes to you with their love-life issues and gets drunk with you. At least one decision will be made tonight – what it will be is up to the audience as Perkins offers up not only a sympathetic ear but a great feeling of togetherness.
Making the decision to see 10,000 Decisions is a no-brainer – let your amygdala blurt our yes and your frontal cortex pay for the tickets! It’s one decision you won’t regret.
