John Robins – Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven (John Robins)

By | Published on Saturday 20 August 2011

The immensely likeable John Robins possesses the remarkable ability of making the awkward and outdated charming and stylish. He utters the quaint adjective “smashing” eleven times during this performance without the slightest hint of irony; it makes him exactly the sort of polite, articulate man that you’d be delighted to introduce to your grandparents. Conversely, he’s so exuberant and idiosyncratic that he’d be a tremendous late-night drinking partner. After hanging onto his every antiquated turn of phrase and laughing at his heart-warming anecdotes, I left the show wishing he were my best friend. Go and see him now before he’s headlining at the biggest venues. You will have an absolutely smashing time, I promise.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, 4 – 28 Aug (not 17), 7.00pm (8.00pm), £7.00 – £9.00, fpp101.
