John Robins, 2017 Edinburgh Comedy Award winning comedian returns to Pleasance with self-lacerating soul bearing as he yells into the well. His show is appropriately called Hot Shame.
Better known as a radio presenter and for his comedy bromance with Elis James, John has not developed the stand up following of his peers. Although he started performing in 2005 and was part of a group of rising comedy talent, in terms of recognition John always seemed a little behind the others.
