After sell out seasons at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and WA’s Wild West Comedy Festival, touring WA comic John Robertson brings his award winning comedy to Sydney for one night only!
It’s a show for boys and girls of all ages, especially the dark ages. It’s a manic journey through history’s biggest bastards, with all the icky bits left in. Join sexy bad guy Robertson as he pulls out puppets, vampires, a ukulele, blood, gore, the Marquis de Sade, Stalin, Hitler, exploding dogs and all manner of rogues and rapscallions. It’s fun, it’s frantic, it’s the comedy of your nightmares.

John Robertson has toured the world as an MC and comedian. In 2010, he was named as one of Zoo Magazine’s Top 10 Young Aussie Comics. He has toured with Wayne Brady (US), Mark Watson (UK) and a host of others. A Nifty History of Evil is his fourth solo show in as many years, recently picking up both the Critic’s Choice and Artist’s Choice awards at the Wild West Comedy Festival.
This is the Robertson’s final Australian show before heading to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August.
