Iain Stirling - U OK HUN? X

Sunday 11th February 2018

BAFTA-winning comedian Iain Stirling is back after a summer narrating smash hit Love Island (ITV2) and now you can see his actual face on his brand new tour!
Join the ‘star of comedy’ (The i) as he explores dinner party etiquette, feminism and the pressures on a generation brought up in a world of instant gratification. How has modern living affected our ability to find long term happiness? Can social media ever reflect real life? And why is the floor lava?
A firm Edinburgh Fringe favourite, Iain has sold out the festival an impressive five times to date. Currently on our screens as the host of ITV2’s newest hit gameshow CelebAbility, Iain’s intuitive razor-sharp humour has previously been seen on Virtually Famous (E4), Drunk History and Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central (both Comedy Central), Russell Howard's Good News and Sweat the Small Stuff (both BBC Three) and Fake Reaction and Safe Word (both ITV2).
'Provides an intriguing twentysomething perspective on the current state of his nation' Guardian
'Possesses all the born-with-it-or-you’re-not-qualities associated with the world’s leading comics' List

John Robins: The Darkness of Robins

Sunday 18th February 2018

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 can’t break up with himself.
The stand-up, vibe magnet and London’s saddest DJ ™ would love to promise The Darkness of Robins 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 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 UK’s 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 UK’s most popular podcasts. The pair recently completed an acclaimed UK tour, selling out Shepherd’s 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 Howard’s Good News (BBC3). He also has a host of radio credits under his belt including BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show, The News Quiz and Dilemma.
'Hugely Entertaining' Daily Mirror *****
'A former flatmate of a clutch of successful Bristol-based comics that included Russell Howard and Jon Richardson, John Robins could be the next of his peer group to go on to greater things.' Independent ****
'An hour in his charming, generous and honest company is so effortlessly entertaining' Chortle ****
'One of the most naturally gifted comedians I’ve seen' Telegraph
