About Rob Auton - The Hair Show
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
A show for anyone who has, or has had, hair and hairs.
Award winning stand-up comedian and poet Rob Auton (Dave’s Funniest Joke Of The Fringe award winner, Glastonbury’s ‘Poet In Residence’) returns with another heart-felt and offbeat comedy/theatre/spoken word show that explores hair and hairs.
Rob casts an introspective eye over the world of hair, underpinned by leaving his head hair and beard to their own devices until he has performed The Hair Show for the final time. Join Rob as he explores the importance of appearance and how people react to someone who looks like he has checked out.
For the past five years Rob has used his command of words and distinctive unconventional humour to explore seemingly mundane subjects: sleep, water, faces, the sky and the colour yellow. These shows have given rise to a cult status at the Fringe. His unique world view has been acknowledged through being shortlisted for the prestigious Spoken Word Award by the Arts Foundation, receiving a Best Short Film nomination for the The Peamaster, which he co-wrote and starred in, at the Milan Film Festival.
Alongside performing solo, Rob hosts 'the best poetry gig in the UK' Times Bang Said The Gun. The spoken-word night’s raucous and anarchic spirit attracts a rich mix of new talent and some of the most established names in poetry/music including KATE TEMPEST, ROGER MCGOUGH and JOHN HEGLEY.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Rob Auton - The Hair Show are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
