LAUGHING COYOTE’s favourite act is back.
Regular MC and oft-performing comedy genius JOHN ROBINS is back.
Host of XFM’s Saturday morning show, tour support for Russell Howard and John Richardson.
'Comedy's Best Kept Secret’ is about to be revealed. John has had arguably his most successful year to date.
Last year’s show “THIS TORNADO LOVES YOU” was critically acclaimed garnering 4 and 5 star reviews across the board (to add to the myriad 4 stars for previous shows).
“Robins presents comedy in its rawest form: one man, one microphone, one fantastically funny show.” Three Weeks *****
“Just… funny, joyous and charmingly self deprecating. Fine stuff indeed” Steve Bennett, Chortle ****
“An honest, poignant and very funny hour” The List ****
Alter egos, ailments, love, nostalgia, indie-nights and belly-laughs.
An hour of raucous stand-up for anyone who's tried to live in the moment, only to realise that moment happened over a decade ago.
Seen on Russell Howard's Good News (BBC3), 8 Out Of 10 Cats: Deal Or No Deal Mash-up (Channel 4).

"Intensely funny" and "Very talented" - Timeout
"Intelligent humour and sharp, insightful stand up" - Evening Standard
"There are plenty of comedians willing to dumb themselves down in order to
win audience approval, but that's not a game Jessica Fostekew is prepared to
play...great fun, if not the sort of thing that's likely to win over fans of
Paddy McGuinness" - The Guardian
PLUS local lad done good JAKE LAMBERT.
Jake has been rapidly rising the ranks in the comedy world - a relatively young career has been peppered with awards and plaudits at the best new showcases in the country.
A smattering of one-liners amongst hialrious anecdotes a fine opening to what will be a fantastic night.
