Start your New Year off the right way by joining comedians Ruby Wax and Simon Amstell for an exclusive evening of rip-roaring conversation hosted by Penguin Live. From personal anecdotes on the messy nature of being human, to an exploration of the necessary tools needed to navigate actually being one. Join Ruby Wax and Simon Amstell on stage together for the very first time, for an evening like no other that promises to be both enlightening and hilarious. To celebrate the paperback publication of both Ruby’s and Simon’s books, tickets include a copy of both How To Be Human and HELP. This is a fantastic opportunity to get your hands on not one but TWO books (RRP. £18.99).

How to be Human is the only manual you need to help you upgrade your mind as much as you've upgraded your iPhone. With a little help from a monk (who tells us how our mind works) and a neuroscientist (who tells us how our brain works), Ruby Wax answers every question you've ever had about: evolution, thoughts, emotions, the body, addictions, relationships, sex, kids, the future and compassion.

HELP is the hilarious and heart-breaking account of Simon’s ongoing compulsion to reveal his entire self on stage. To tell the truth so it can’t hurt him any more. Loneliness, anxiety, depression – this book has it all. And more. From a complicated childhood in Essex to an Ayahuasca-led epiphany in the Amazon rainforest, this story will make you laugh, cry and then feel happier than you’ve ever been.

'A beautiful and clever book about being human. All the warmth of his comedy without the inconvenience of his face' - Russell Brand
