Edinburgh Comedy Award-winning comedian and ARIA award-winning broadcaster John Robins embark on his first stand-up tour since 2019, and heads to The Haymarket on Saturday, September 16.  If you’ve seen him before you know what to expect; rage, anxiety and a lot of laughs.

Meanwhile, stand-up comedian and writer Jen Brister, is due to be at The Haymarket on Sunday, September 17, is a regular performer on the comedy circuit and has appeared on BBC’s Live at the Apollo and Mock the Week. If middle age has taught Jen anything, it’s that optimism does not come naturally to her. In fact, it’s fair to say that her cup is very much half-empty, and she’s making no attempt to fill it. Can Jen work against her natural instincts and finally see the light?
