'The Time Show’ is the latest comedy/theatre/spoken word show by writer and performer of some of what he writes, Rob Auton.
Following on from his critically acclaimed shows about talking, hair, sleep, water, faces, the sky and the colour yellow, 'the Fringe's comedian laureate' British Comedy Guide now turns his attention to time.
He will be asking questions such as “What time is it?” and “What is it time?”

Arrive Early for Seating
Tickets for the majority of our shows can be collected at the venue door upon entry however we would still advise arriving a little in advance of our door opening time. This allows you to join a queue as all venues are general admission and a mixture of seating and standing room. This is especially true for Edinburgh and Newcastle if you aim to eat in our clubs as seating with tables tend to be taken quite quickly and we can’t allocate or reserve seating in advance for that purpose.
For Edinburgh Fringe dates during August, we advise you arrive at least 30 minutes before doors open for your selected shows to collect your festival tickets. This allows you to join a queue as all venues are general admission. All venues are seated apart from Stand 1 which is seating and standing room. There is no food service during Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
A concession rate ticket applies to 60+, Students, unemployed, benefit recipients with proof of ID upon collection.
The Stand also allow carers to go free – please just call our box office for further information an to confirm your booking.
