Feature - John Robertson

Since age 17, John has exchanged stream-of-consciousness lunacy for real, solid cash.

He left his day job in 2008 (fired) to do comedy full-time (much better), quickly establishing himself as an in-demand club headliner and event MC (money).

From 2008 – 2010, he was the Australian tour support for Mark Watson, Wayne Brady and Rob Schneider,
before making his debut at the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2010.

His show that year, “A Nifty History of Evil” won the Critic’s Choice Award at the Wild West Comedy Festival, established his UK cult following and brought him to the front page of the BBC News website.

His 2011 Fringe shows, “Dragon Punch!” and “Blood & Charm: Disturbing Stories for Disturbing Bedtimes” solidified that cult and added to his awards, with “Dragon Punch!” taking out Best Show at the Wild West Comedy Festival that year. 2012’s “The Dark Room” was an Edinburgh smash, leading to commissions for web content from Hat Trick Productions and PIAS International. In 2013, “The Dark Room” transferred to Underbelly for its Fringe appearances, leading to seaons in London’s 400-seat Udderbelly theatre in 2014 and 2015. It took home an Argus Angel at Brighton Fringe 2014 and Director’s Choice at Bedford Fringe.

To give you the flavour of his act, well, John crowd-surfed at Sonisphere 2014 after doing a set involving a ukulele. If you can crowd-surf at Europe’s largest heavy metal festival after playing folk music on ukulele, well, I don’t want to say, “New Messiah”, but it does makes Christ’s “walking on water” trick seem pretty tame.

“A manic and quick-witted revelation” – The Scotsman

“His material is edgy, intelligent and smoothly-delivered… this is astute, amoral stand-up for the morbidly inclined” – The Age
