“beautifully crafted; just like Auton’s comedy… his act is well honed and his ease is infectious… Watching, you’d struggle not be swept up in the charm of it all”
Isobel Lewis, The Independent ★★★★

“It’s a lovely hour of storytelling… gentle and heartfelt but packs some very big laughs… This is a finely crafted show, with great callbacks, and his last routine – delivered with passion – acts as a reminder that we all here for the human experience.”
Veronica Lee, The Arts Desk ★★★★

“both hysterically funny and quite moving… a master wordsmith at the top of his game”

Esmé Violet Anderson, Entertainment Now ★★★★

“The Rob Auton Show is unlike any other stand-up comedy show in existence…  a very personal performance that mixes comedy with spoken word poetry in an expression of bittersweet nostalgia… It's unlikely that there would be a dry eye left in the auditorium after hearing Rob Auton perform.”

“thoroughly enjoyable”

Mervyn Stutter’s Pick of The Fringe ★★★★

“a Fringe staple… it's only right that the time has come to focus his razor sharp poetic wit on himself. The Rob Auton Show is his most personal work yet and it might also be his funniest… You'll laugh until you cry… hits a whole new height. Catch it before it sells out.”
