Robert White - Hire Comedians

Robert White


Since Robert White came onto the stand-up scene, as a finalist in the prestigious Hackney Empire competition, Robert has gone from strength to strength.

Robert White is now a sought after act who regularly performs in big clubs, little clubs and those in-between around the UK and sometimes abroad. He is a versatile performer who does both musical comedy or straight stand-up and can MC, as well as having written for other comedians and for TV panel shows.

Quotes

‘Robert White is a ball of comedic energy so sharp and expansive you could almost feel the static crackling through your hair. His set comprised of musical excerpts, improvised composition and sounds and harsh comedic superlatives. His sweet, sincere appearance is in sharp contrast to the deluge of perverse wordplay and hilariously disgraceful insinuations. He is like the South Park character of stand up, appalling and shocking from beneath his blond hair and beautiful boyish looks. His absence of the slightest quiescence kept the audience on their toes in thorough entertainment. With his quick intelligence and child’s penchant for mayhem, his material and performance are extremely funny, shocking and original. He’s a spark amongst the daunting circuitry of the comedy hard drive. Fantastic!’ BBC

‘Get him on Shooting Stars – Robert White’s show is a jaw-dropping riot. ….. the mix of lewd innuendo, cheesy jokes, music hall songs played on a knackered keyboard and sound-effects games makes for a side-splitting hour.’ The List – Four stars ****

‘Delivering a mixture of stand up, songs, props and audience interaction, Robert White tries hard – and spectacularly succeeds ….. never seems to fail to provoke laughter’ Three weeks – Four stars ****

‘….. highly impressive, weirdly exciting, audacious hour ….. an unembarassable love of innuendo, musical pastiche, and a dash of unrequited poignancy……. he’s a frighteningly good performer …. His camp, musicality and relentlessness are perfect.’ Edinburghisfunny – Four stars ****

“Very Funny fantastic oddball ….. A funny and brave act that exists in the hitherto unmapped space between the music hall comedies of Noel Gay, and autistic savantism” Timeout

‘ … souped-up risqué keyboard-based songs, waspish asides and neurotically charged camperie from a hyperactive man-child who is among the most original of this year’s Fringe. …. Superb’ Telegraph

‘Robert White, probably – no definitely – the only asperger, dyslexic, cross lateral, gay, quarter-welsh, webbed toed comedian the circuit’ The Guardian

‘White takes hyperactive comedy to new heights. Occasionally he becomes so agitated that the audience doesn’t know whether to laugh or call him an ambulance !. …. Brilliant’ The Skinny

‘Precociously talented…With his quickfire wit and relentless energy reminiscent of Lee Evans, he had the audience in the palm of his hand.’ Brighton Argus

‘He’s manic, camp and mildly afflicted…absolutely cracking gags.’ Chortle

‘A bit of a nutter’ ‘Very funny!’ Kate Copstick
