Comedy: John Robins - The Darkness of Robins

John Robins: The Darkness of Robins


Award winning comedian John Robins  is one of the most exciting and distinctive voices in comedy. He returns to reflect on love, loss and lamenting the fact he can’t break up with himself.

The stand-up, vibe magnet and London’s saddest DJ ™ would love to promise The Darkness of Robins won’t be an hour-long yell of a show, but he can’t. He’ll shout, snarl and sneer in his attempts to grapple with life’s fall-outs in what promises to be a pivotal moment in his being. Powerful, angst-ridden comedy at its finest, this is a must-see from one of the UK’s brightest talents.

This show is RESCHEDULED to Saturday April 28th. Current tickets are valid for the new date and any ticketholders unable to attend can claim a full refund. We apologise for this change, which is because of the artist's filming commitments.

John has firmly established himself on the comedy circuit since his debut in 2005, and with fellow comedian Elis James has enjoyed a meteoric success with The Elis James and John Robins show on Radio X. Which, like Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant and Adam & Joe before them, has spawned one of the UK’s most popular podcasts. The pair recently completed an acclaimed UK tour, selling out Shepherd’s Bush Empire within minutes.

He will headline the upcoming series of Live from the BBC and is a regular face on TV, with recent appearances including Mock The Week , Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled and Russell Howard’s Good News. He also has a host of radio credits under his belt including BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show, The News Quiz and Dilemma.

Hugely Entertaining
The Daily Mirror *****

A former flatmate of a clutch of successful Bristol-based comics that included Russell Howard and Jon Richardson, John Robins could be the next of his peer group to go on to greater things.
