John Robertson is an Australian comic currently killing it in the U.K. He’s had sell-out shows in London, Hong Kong, Phnom Penh, Berlin, Singapore, Edinburgh Fringe, Birmingham, Bristol, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and probably Adelaide (he can’t remember.)
With 4,000,000 YouTube hits, a wife he met because he faked a seizure on season one of Australian Idol (Guy Sebastian got the money, but he got the girl), this man is a whirlwind of insults dressed in a nice suit. Come and see him - he says this with love - you’re an idiot.
