Stand Up For The Weekend

with JOHN ROBINS
in This Tornado Loves You
on Saturday 7 March

John Robins

 Saturday 7 March
8.45pm £12

JOHN ROBINS

THIS TORNADO LOVES YOU

"Sparkling stand up" The Times

"Delivering belly laughs through phrasing alone, and conjuring side-splitting turns of phrase as he regales his self-deprecatory tales" Chortle

John Robins is a young, effortlessly funny former Bristol-based comedian whose distinctive, self-absorbed comedy marks him out as someone who is uniquely different and deserves your attention if you've not seen him before. An annual visitor to the Edinburgh Festival, John has now produced and performed six exquisitely personal solo stand-up shows.

Following his critically acclaimed sell-out Fringe run in 2014, John Robins is back with his latest solo offering. The Bristolian storyteller and XFM presenter brings a show about love and happiness.

"Fantastically entertaining" Chortle

"Fiercely intelligent, but also genuinely sympathetic and ludicrously funny - I laughed so much it made my lungs hurt" Three Weeks Edinburgh Festival

"Robins is a superlative storyteller - self-depracating, yet charming and captivating" Chortle

"Awesomely self-possessed" The Guardian
