John Robins: The Darkness of Robins
Guilt! Shame! Regret! Stand-up comedian, vibe magnet and London’s saddest DJ yells into a well for 55 minutes. The Elis James and John Robins show on Radio X has gained cult status for their beta male badinage, unproduceable riffing and willingness to discuss mental health with an upbeat, lyrical voice. Robins is one of the most exciting comic voices at the Fringe. In The Darkness Of Robins he reflects on love, loss, and laments the injustice that you can’t break up with yourself.
One half of The Elis James and John Robins Show on Radio X. As heard on ‘The News Quiz’ (Radio 4) As seen on Russell Howard’s Stand-Up Central (Comedy Central), Alan Davis: As Yet untitled (Dave).
