John Robertson - THE OLD WHORE
SPECIAL DIAMOND JUBILEE SHOW! In 1950, John Robertson slept with the Queen of England. He is not sorry. Now for the first, last and only time, you can hear the whole tale of how one outrageous young bastard travelled back in time, found the private parts of a monarch and declared them terra nullius.
This is dirty comedy for smart people. Or smart comedy for dirty people. Or both. And now a moment of silence for the comedians who died so I could be here.
‘his material, whether he’s dissecting modern drama or advocating the murder of the Sound of Music’s Maria Von Trapp is edgy, intelligent and smoothly delivered… astute, amoral comedy for the morbidly inclined.’ **** – The Age, Melbourne
‘John Robertson is a manic and quick- witted revelation!’ – The Scotsman, Edinburgh
‘Tim Burton might be the closest frame of reference, but his most memorable character only had scissor-hands; Robertson’s has a zombie-vagina… this is a stylish, alternative, funny and at least partially honest journey to nowhere.’ **** – Chortle UK
JOHN ROBERTSON (7:30 Report, ABC Radio) is the 27 year- old whizz kid troublemaker whose epileptic fit on Australian Idol made three million homes go, ‘Wow! The bird is the word’. Touring constantly for the last four years, John has played theatres in London, bomb shelters in Budapest and The Comedy Store about a thousand times. (John also created the viral YouTube hit ‘The Dark Room’, now responsible for seventy different death threats on eight different continents.)
