Never miss another 'John Robins' show
Bright Club: Summer: John Robins, Jim Smallman
Bright Club, the comedy night where UCL researchers join actual comedians on the stage to do some stand up is having it’s last ever gig at the Wilmington Ams.
John is a comedian, broadcaster and voice over artist based in London. He presents a weekly show on Radio X alongside friend and fellow comedian Elis James. 'The Elis James and John Robins Show' podcast has gained them a devoted following, and is a fixture in the top twenty comedy podcast charts. In 2017 they won The Chortle Award for Best Radio.
John began performing stand-up in 2005 and was an alumni of the legendary 'Bristol Comedy Flat' alongside Russell Howard, Jon Richardson and Mark Olver.
In 2016 Elis and John announced their first major live appearances together. 'The Elis James and John Robins Experience' saw them bring their unique chemistry to venues up and down the country. Demand was unprecedented and tickets for London's Shepherd's Bush Empire sold out in a matter of hours.
John has appeared on numerous television shows including Mock The Week (BBC2), Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled Series 1 & 3 (Dave), Stand-Up Central (Comedy Central), Russell Howard's Good News (BBC3), Live at The Comedy Store (Comedy Central and Drunk History (Comedy Central).
'One man, one microphone, one fantastically funny show' (Three Weeks)
'Like discovering buried treasure' (Fest)
'A complete and utter natural' (Russell Howard)
'One of the most consistently pleasing hours on the fringe' (The Independent)
John Robins tour dates
Best Debut Show Nominee - Leicester Comedy Festival Awards 2009. Jim is an amusingly tattooed, manic depressive former child prodigy with tall tales of his wrongness coming out of his ears. And yet he used to be so nice...what on earth happened? This is his story so far.
Jim has performed in Singapore, Denmark and Los Angeles as well as all over the UK. His stories are brutally honest, always true, and often unbelievable - and have won him an army of fans all over the world.
'Wonderfully gritty... his struggles with mental illness and alcoholism make for impressive comic pickings' (The Guardian)
'It's obvious that Jim Smallman is a natural-born compere. He has such an easy rapport with the audience and tells his tales with a fluidity and energy that keeps everyone attentive' (Chortle)
'Jim Smallman is not just a comic who tells brilliant jokes, he is a heart-warming storyteller, and his experiences will have you captivated and laughing out loud' (Three Weeks).
