ED2012 Comedy Review: Rob Auton – The Yellow Show (PBH’s Free Fringe)

ED2012 3/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

From rubber gloves to rubber ducks, Rob Auton has an inexplicable love for the colour yellow. Auton is no lemon himself; his wordy poetic monologues and songs about all things yellow are rather impressive. This show is extremely watchable (and won’t hurt your wallet as it is part of the free festival), and although you might not chuckle all the way through, you’ll probably leave wanting to know more about this curious and intelligent character. The downside is that at times the show became completely nonsensical and unfunny, with Auton rambling on like a mad man. Yet as a whole, this bizarre show concept worked, was a little addictive, and will leave you will a smile on your face. And yes, Rob Auton really can talk about yellow for one whole hour…

The Banshee Labyrinth, 5-25 Aug (not 14), 4.00pm
