Melbourne International Comedy Festival proudly presents

Rob Auton The Time Show (UK)

In his Australian debut, whimsical genius Rob Auton brings his eccentric charm and philosophical meanderings to Melbourne International Comedy Festival following a critically-acclaimed season at Edinburgh Fringe.

Following his shows about the colour yellow, the sky, faces, water, sleep, hair and talking, the award-winning writer and performer turns his attention to time.

A clip of Rob performing on Stand-Up Central with Rob Delaney (Comedy Central) went viral with over seven million views on Facebook, adding to broadcast credits including End of the F***ing World (Netflix) and The Russell Howard Hour.
