Comedian, writer and broadcaster Robin Ince will be performing two new shows in Manchester and Salford as part of the 9th Greater Manchester Fringe in July.

Coping with the Cosmos on July 11 at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation in Manchester is about trying to accept the universe the way it is, with bungled quantum theory, natural selection and dung beetles.

The Satanic Rites of Robin Ince, on July 15 at the King's Arms in Salford, sees him turns to the dark side to celebrate the films of Peter Cushing and the embroidery of Ernst Thesiger, a celebration of horror flicks and books that were the security blanket that helped him survive being young.

Ince regularly explores UFOs, aliens, conspiracy theories, the future of humanity and human evolution on the BBC Radio 4 show The Infinite Monkey Cage with Professor Brian Cox.

More than 50 Fringe shows are already on sale via the GM Fringe web site.
