Rob Auton – The Sky Show (Rob Auton / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Tuesday 20 August 2013

It’s not often that a comedian can genuinely make you cry with laughter – the contrived scenario of someone intentionally trying to make you laugh can sometimes produce nothing more than a giggle – however, for Rob Auton comedy is just second nature. It’s hard to categorise this comedian – he was erratic, eccentric and threw in the odd monologue about his love for the sky. Auton has this drunk, childlike quality to him, making him instantly lovable. I don’t have the vaguest clue what goes on in this guy’s head but I know that I absolutely have to see this show again, with as many friends as I can convince to go before the Fringe is over.

The Banshee Labyrinth, until 24 Aug (not 13), 4.00pm.
