John Robins – Where Is My Mind? (Phil McIntyre Entertainments)

By | Published on Friday 2 August 2013

“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.” Taking inspiration from an old tattered copy of ‘The Great Gatsby’, Robins takes his audience on a nostalgic journey beginning with his awkward adolescent years and running right through to his ageing, ailing thirties. The witty dialogue flows seamlessly from story to story, with topics spanning from rimming to reverse parking, each of which is as hilarious as the last. This self-deprecating stand-up captivates his audience brilliantly and holds them, with ease, for the duration of the show. Keeping it simple, Robins presents comedy in its rawest form: one man, one microphone, one fantastically funny show.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 25 Aug, 9.30pm.
