About the comedians:
John Robertson is a stand-up comedian and author, born in Perth Western Australia – and is also a children’s author, improviser, actor, videogame writer, puppeteer, ukulele player and all round manic hurricane man.
Robertson began his stand-up career in 2002, and upon moving to the United Kingdom, after developing his stand-up career, he debuted at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2010 with his solo show “A Nifty History of Evil”. He has since performed at the Edinburgh Fringe every year since, often in parallel to his live-action video game stand-up show “The Dark Room”.
Robertson has performed in venues as large as the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham as part of the Insomnia Gaming Festival, and at the London Film and Comic Con and MCM London Comic Con. Robertson also performs at established comedy venues nationally and internationally – alongside streaming via his Twitch channel, gathering more than 10,000 followers over the pandemic.
