Square Hole Comedy / July 3rd / Shakespeares

Recommended Posts

Established in 2010 Square Hole Comedy has recently settled into its new home at Shakespeares and returns next on Sunday 3rd July with this splendiferous line-up.

 

John Robertson


Robertson is an irrepressible reprobate and scallywag, but dresses well and writes beautifully. A comic since 2003, his high-energy improv and impish crowd work means he arrives, raises hell and leaves. He has a devoted cult following thanks in part to his online Twitch shows and touring shows. He was the winner of Chortle Legend of Lockdown in 2021 and won Best Kids Show at Leicester Comedy Festival in 2019.

 

Not only a comic, his first play, Killing Hun In The Sun was nominated for the West Australian Equity Award for Best New Play, and his first novel, The Little Town of Marrowville, is a dark fantasy comedy aimed at children (directly, at their heads). He wrote and presented Videogame Nation for Sky TV and his Edinburgh Fringe project The Dark Room racked up millions of YouTube views, creating a new genre of interactive comedy. Robertson continues to tour the world, delighting and alarming audiences in every hemisphere and on almost every continent. For his impressive body of work he was presented with a ThreeWeeks Editor’s Choice Award at the Edinburgh Fringe.

 

“A manic and quick-witted revelation… if you only see one Perth-born set this year, make it John Robertson.” / The Scotsman

“this is astute, amoral stand-up for the morbidly inclined” **** / The Age, Melbourne

“ridiculously entertaining” / Kate Copstick

“you must see this show” ***** / British Comedy Guide

“stylish, alternative, funny” **** / Chortle

“Brilliant, bemusing and bloodthirsty” / Metro

“A cult is born” / Bruce Dessau

“That he’s a skilled stand-up is plain to see” / The List

“A hotly-tipped comedian for a good reason… he strides onto the stage giving precisely zero ****s” / The Skinny

“a triumph” **** / Herald Sun

 

Eryn Tett


Born and raised in Singapore, Tett moved to the UK aged 18 to pursue comedy and has lived and performed in New York, New Zealand before finally landing in the UK. Over the last few years she’s developed her own webseries and comedy night, UBGE Comedy, been a finalist in both the Laughing Horse and 2NorthDown new act of the year competitions, a runner-up the Funny Women Stage Awards, and won the Cherry Comedy Break out Act of the Year 2020. Tett’s stand up is comprised of word play, short jokes, odd observations and surreal storytelling set to a charmingly uncomfortable rhythm. She is currently poised to take her first solo hour show, Eryn Tett Finds Her Audience, to the Edinburgh Fringe.

 

“A well-developed sense of timing… an engagingly idiosyncratic act” / Chortle

“Fast-moving and absurd… beside ourselves with laughter” / Diva Magazine

“Her writing – weird but with at least one toe still in observational reality – is intriguing” / Chortle

“Unique in all the best ways…so fun to watch. She’s going to be massive” / Adam Hess
