In 2019, I- Rob Auton, took my Time Show to the Edinburgh Festival.  I loved doing the show and was looking forward to touring it and taking it to the Melbourne Comedy festival in Australia. In 2020 I started to tour the Time Show around the country, half way through the tour, the tour was cancelled, along with the vast amount of everything else in the world.  I crossed everything out of my diary and strapped myself in(side).

We rescheduled this tour date, cancelled it, rescheduled the date again, cancelled it, but now we have this date. It’s about time.  I hope you’re doing alright and if you want to come and see a show about time then I’d love to see you there in a safe environment.  Below are some reviews the show has got so far if you are looking for some light reading.

All the best,


‘The Time Show’ is the latest comedy/theatre/spoken word show by writer and performer of some of what he writes Rob Auton. Following on from his critically acclaimed shows about talking, hair, sleep, water, faces, the sky and the colour yellow, ‘the Fringe’s comedian laureate’ (British Comedy Guide) now turns his attention to time. He will be asking questions such as ‘What time is it?’ and ‘What is it time?’
