Rob Auton

The Time Show

Melbourne Town Hall - Portico Room

In his Australian debut, whimsical genius Rob Auton brings his eccentric charm and philosophical meanderings to the Festival following a critically acclaimed season at Edinburgh Fringe.

Following his shows about the colour yellow, the sky, faces, water, sleep, hair and talking, the award-winning writer and performer turns his attention to time.

A clip of Auton performing on Stand-Up Central With Rob Delaney (Comedy Central) went viral with over seven million views on Facebook, adding to broadcast credits including End of the F***ing World (Netflix) and The Russell Howard Hour.
