From the team behind the ‘all killer, no filler’ TIME OUT Live at the Chapel
John is a comedian and broadcaster based in London. He presents a weekly show on Radio X alongside friend and fellow comedian Elis James. 'The Elis James and John Robins Show' podcast has gained them a devoted following, it has received over 25 million downloads and is a regular fixture in the podcast charts. In 2017 he won the prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Award (formerly The Perrier Award) for his show 'The Darkness Of Robins'. In 2018 he took the show on a 68 date UK tour which included a sell-out performance at London's Hammersmith Apollo. "One of the most naturally gifted comedians I've seen" The Telegraph
Welsh Comedian Kiri Pritchard-Mclean is a double Chortle Award winning stand up comedian, writer and satirist. Recent television appearances include Have I Got News For You, The Russell Howard Hour (which she writes on) and Stand Up Central. Kiri hosted both Stand Up at BBC Wales and Wales at the Edinburgh Fringe for the BBC where she introduces a throng of the most exciting comics in the UK. “An increasingly impressive comic, making powerhouse standup from the thorniest of subjects” The Guardian
Apologetic Eton and Oxford alumnus Ivo started stand-up in 2009 at the age of 18, and eight months and later became the youngest ever winner of the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny award for new acts at the Edinburgh Fringe. He has become a regular fixture in the clubs and theatres of the UK circuit, with a gauche charm and crafty, self-aware wit which has proved a hit with audiences of all ages, and led to appearances on multiple TV and radio shows including Live At The Apollo (BBC Two) and Mock the Week (BBC2). As the Evening Standard put it, ‘if you like your comedy with long words and beautiful linguistic flourishes, buy a ticket immediately’.
Olga was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards in 2018 for her debut hour, Fight, and has appeared on Mock The Week, The Now Show, Pls Like, The Blame Game, BBC Arts Hour & your little brother's dreams. "Full of dark humour… slick, impeccably timed and every joke lands" ★★★★★ Broadway Baby
