He’s married, has two kids, a dog and an eye-watering mortgage, (is in debt) in these times of austerity and uncertainty, but remains resolute that a career in unpredictable world of comedy was absolutely the right way to go. (It’s far too late to try something else now.)
Rob takes this trademark comedic storytelling to a career high in this full length show, as he leads us on an irresistibly hilarious journey of enforced introspection, that has taught him to relinquish any attempts to control his life and to face down literally one of the most awkward situations you’re ever likely to hear about.
Most definitely a middle-aged bloke Rob happily holds his hands up as being about as ‘un-sexy’ as it’s possible to be in terms of broad brush ‘Key Marketing Demographics’*, but as a stand-up, he is in the form of his life.

Tom Binns in an award-winning and critical acclaimed character comedian working the International Comedy Festivals and the UK Stand Up Comedy Circuit. He's arguably earned more five-star reviews than any other comedian - but then you can arguably say the earth is flat. (we still think the five-star review thing is true)

Although John Hastings has won copious amounts of awards on his home turf, frankly they mean nothing to us here, zilch. As a committed anglophile this wrangled him, so he decided become a successful comedian in the UK, (where it matters). So he picked up his bags and gags and moved to London in search of stardom and adventure but instead he found enlightenment...
'A thoughtful and observant comic with enjoyably wry sensibilities' (Chortle.co.uk).
