Double Chortle Award winning comedian John Robins will be bringing his new show The Darkness of Robins to The Epstein Theatre on Saturday 24th February and tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday 13th October.
One of the most exciting and distinctive voices in comedy, John’s new show reflects 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 U.K.’s brightest talents.
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 U.K.’s most popular podcasts. The pair recently completed an acclaimed U.K. tour, selling out Shepherd’s Bush Empire within minutes.
He will headline the upcoming series of Live from the B.B.C. (B.B.C.2) and is a regular face on television, with recent appearances including Mock The Week (B.B.C.2), Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled (Dave) and Russell Howard’s Good News (B.B.C.3). He also has a host of radio credits under his belt including B.B.C Radio 4’s The Now Show, The News Quiz and Dilemma.
Theatre Manager Rebekah Pichilingi said, “John Robins is a great addition to our already stellar comedy line-up for this season. I know our audiences will have a riotous time at this show.”
