Rob Auton: The Time Show (Show And Tell in association with Avalon Management)

By | Published on Saturday 10 August 2019

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. That’s another four seconds of your life gone. It’s amazing how we assign so much meaning to the passing of time, in so many different ways, but who even decided what it is? Rob Auton is trying to make sense of it, as only he can. Deconstructing the concept of time is deeply philosophical but, as he always does, Auton finds the funniest side of the things we take for granted. His ability to make you rethink what you know, delivered in his unique style – a cross between deadpan and awe at human behaviour – hits the mark every time. From eye-wateringly funny one-liners, to meandering musings on what it means to live in the moment, ‘The Time Show’ is beautifully uplifting. 

Assembly George Square Studios, until 26 Aug.
