Who is he?
Part of improv troupe Racing Minds and a new addition to the hugely successful Austentatious, Roberts also performs solo with a blend of energetic characters and shattering of the fourth wall, packing his sketches with demented gags.
What’s the show about?
A breakneck showcase of his creations, with digressions and PowerPoint meltdowns. All performed with a wild-eyed intensity, and flecked with absurd gags, doctored photos, unrequited love and yoghurt.
He can speak near-fluent Norwegian, which he’s saving for his follow-up show. And he’s a documentary filmmaker who’s interviewed Cherie Blair and Kris Kristofferson.
