Comedian John Robins To Tour New Show Hot Shame

Wednesday, 30 January 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

John Robins will tour the UK with a new show, Hot Shame. 

The new trek will begin with a six-night run at the Tobacco Factory in Bristol between September 2 and 7 and conclude on November 30 at Birmingham Town Hall. The initial 44-date run also includes a night at London's Eventim Apollo.

Robins, who co-hosts The Elis James and John Robins Show on Radio X, said: 

"Following my commercial digital indie radio quest to rid the UK of shame, I have decided to climb the rope out of John's Shame Well to travel the country with stories of "Hot Shame". Conveniently I already had a 44-date pub crawl in the diary, and my agents suggested I combine it with shows at regional arts centres and theatres.

My last tour 'The Darkness Of Robins', was done completely alone, and whilst this saved countless tens of pounds on Travelodges, it had a quite startling impact on my mental health. So, in 2019 I will be bringing along friend and comrade 'The Lovely' Robin Allender to provide support. He will be sharing his own hot takes on, not only shame, but remorse, regret and nostalgia.

You may notice similarities in the shows artwork to the Queen album 'Hot Space', this is no accident. It's an album which remains a small source of shame for the remaining members, I however think it's deserving of re-evaluation. Though this show is not explicitly concerned with the Queen album 'Hot Space', I always think it's useful for the audience to have a little bit of homework. So, whack it on and assess your thoughts.

I'd love to know your thoughts, but just to emphasize, the show, at time of going to press, contains no reference to, mention of, nor material relating, to the Queen album 'Hot Space'."

Tickets go on general sale at 10am on February 1. Head here for pre-sale tickets.
