Having grown up in America, Ruby Wax came to the UK to study at Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. She is a much loved comedian, but like several people in this field, has suffered from depression. Using this experience, and knowledge gained from an Oxford MA in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, Wax wrote a self-help book called Sane New World. In it, she explains how we drive ourselves into anxiety, and gives advice on how to break the cycle. She says:

'We are not equipped for this century, it's too hard, too fast, and too full of fear; we just don't have the bandwidth. Our brains can't take so much information in a world where we're bombarded by bad news and force-fed information. I can just about take in the weather then I'm exhausted. You open a newspaper, everyone's dead. We're only supposed to know what our neighbour is up to; if the woman next door to you is having sex with the man next door to her we need to know; but four doors down and it's none of our business.'

Since the third of Marc, she has been on a Sane New World Tour to help us understand and get through the twenty-first century. She is travelling across the UK until the 22nd May. Ticket prices vary from venue to venue, but they range from around £15 - £19.50.
