Double Chortle Award winning comedian John Robins one of the most exciting and distinctive voices in comedy returns reflecting on love, loss and lamenting the fact he cant break up with himself.
The stand-up, vibe magnet and Londons saddest DJ would love to promise The Darkness of Robins wont be an hour-long yell of a show, but he cant. Hell shout, snarl and sneer in his attempts to grapple with lifes 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 UKs 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 UKs most popular podcasts. The pair recently completed an acclaimed UK tour, selling out Shepherds Bush Empire within minutes.
He will headline the upcoming series of Live from the BBC (BBC2) and is a regular face on TV, with recent appearances including Mock The Week (BBC2), Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled (Dave) and Russell Howards Good News (BBC3). He also has a host of radio credits under his belt including BBC Radio 4s The Now Show, The News Quiz and Dilemma.
