Never miss another 'John Robins' show
The Darkness Of Robins: John Robins
Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner 2017 & Double Chortle Award winning John Robins reflects on love and loss, lamenting the fact he can’t break up with himself.
The stand-up, vibe magnet and London’s saddest DJ ™ would love to promise this 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. Powerful, angst-ridden comedy at its finest.
John co-presents 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.
As seen on Live from the BBC (BBC2), Mock The Week (BBC2), Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled (Dave) and Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC3).
This event takes place at The Lowry, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
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. He is the joint winner of the Edinburgh Comedy Award 2017.
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).
