JOHN ROBINS & PETE FIRMAN - EDINBURGH PREVIEWS
Wednesday 15th JULY - CHARLES CRYER STUDIO - SUTTON
Laughing Coyote favourite JOHN ROBINS returns with a special preview of his nationwide tour.
Regular MC and oft-performing comedy genius, 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).
