Live Review, Live at the Chapel with James Acaster, Kevin Eldon, Jayde Adams, Carl Donnelly, John Robins

When the pioneering Invisible Dot organisation closed down in 2016 there was a fear that the regular Union Chapel gigs promoted by ID might come to an end too. There have been lots of memorable nights at this Islington church over the years and luckily for the comedy world promoter Will Briggs has picked up the baton. Briggs is clearly a shrewd man, even if last night’s compere John Robins described him as looking like a stoner out of Point Break.

Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – John Robins

If you don’t know who John Robins is, then it is about time you remedied the situation. Robins is one of the damn finest stand-ups around at the moment. Well-informed radio fans will know him for his Radio X show with Elis James, TV fans should know him for the spooky story about spiders hatching on a friends' face that he told on Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled. If you get a chance to catch him doing stand-up grab it as if your life depended upon it. He's at Soho Theatre this week and then from Feb 4 - 6.
