“NOT TO BE MISSED” - The Guardian
★★★★ “a splendid comedy beast” - The Scotsman
★★★★ “this is astute, amoral comedy for the morbidly-inclined” - The Age
★★★★ “a triumph” - Herald Sun
When The Guardian described Australian comic, John Robertson, as a stand-up “not to be missed,” they weren’t kidding. His unconventional, hysterical stage presence and style has been wooing comedy clubs around the world for a number of years.

Now this maverick comedian is coming to Vietnam, and will be bringing with him his award-winning, one-man show, The Dark Room, a show that on YouTube has garnered over 500,000 hits.

First created in 2012, with the use of projector screens Robertson transforms himself into a live video game. He describes the experience in a recent article in Vice Magazine.

“It’s a multiplayer text adventure starring a floating head that wants to destroy you. It’s a choose-your-own-adventure that breaks your brain. Options are projected onto a screen, and the floating head is me, holding a light and screaming abuse into your dumb, little face.”

The idea is for players aka the audience to try and escape, but John stops them “through a combination of logic and the kind of insults my high school PE teacher used to mistake for encouragement.”

So for a night of interactive, stand-up comedy with a twist, get yourself down to Standing Bar on Thursday, Sep. 28. This is dark, surreal and very, very funny. Support comes from Dan Tackage, Kapil Patwardhan, Sean Hynek, Nikki Nguyễn, and Host for the night - Erick Garcia!

Advance tickets available from 14 September at the venue Standing Bar or online via TicketBox*. Advance tickets are VND200K, tickets on the door cost 250K. All tickets include a complimentary glass of Pasteur Street's Jasmine IPA.
