Edinburgh Fringe Review 2019 – John Robins, Hot Shame, Pleasance Courtyard

There's a theory that the best stand-up comedy has to be relatable in some way. The centrepiece of John Robins' latest show Hot Shame is a story of how he dug a stress-based hole for himself when he had a spot of damp at home. The yarn involves researching reviews of humidifiers, hiring specialist plasterers and crumpling into a ball on the floor. Don't worry if you've not gone through this specific brand of trauma yourself though. It's absolutely gut-bustingly hilarious to hear Robins go through it on your behalf.
