Always Be Comedy: The Tommyfield pub, Kennington, London, 2020
John Robins appeared at Always Be Comedy in February, March, May and previewing his new show in June 2019. Trying out new material and armed with notebook, he delivered sets of comic gold saying and reading anything that came to mind. Robins had extremely easy-going, relaxed stage presence that incorporates very clever stand-up comedy. He was very easy to listen to and draws the audience in what he is talking about. What was great to see is how he intelligently describes a situation he has got himself into and describes how he tries to resolve the issue with hilarious results – a classic example from his preview show was a story involving a dehumidifier that he was forced to buy.
Robins appeared again in February 2020 at Always Be Comedy. He has an ability to take a sentence and turn it into a brilliant twenty-minute routine. Robins seems to get better every time I see him live and wish him every success.
