The Elis James and John Robins Experience

THE cult TV and radio comedy duo are back. Elis James and John Robins, who are stars of the Chortle Award Nominated Radio X weekend show and cult podcast, have announced their debut UK tour for 2016 entitled:- 'The Elis James and John Robins Experience.' The tour takes in 20 dates starting on 6 October 2016, at the Norwich Playhouse and culminating on 14 November 2016, at London's Kentish Town Forum. The Kentish Town Forum is additional London show due to overwhelming public demand as the Shepherds Bush Empire date sold out in 3 days! This comes off the back of shows earlier this year in Cardiff and Salford that sold out months in advance. With an army of fans this is a massive underground and cult hit that follows in the footsteps of great Radio X podcasts from:- Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, Russell Brand and Adam and Joe. This podcast is unique, having created its own world that people love being a part of with its own language. Do you know the meaning of the following phrases and expressions? PDC? One-er? Son of a Coin? Keep It Session? Are you on email? You simply have to be these days. This is your chance to finally taste the vibe when Elis and John take their hit podcast on the road! The show will mix familiar features with some specially prepared treats and the odd #keepitsession ale. Expect 'Sacred Cows' deemed "too obscure" (Producer Dave) for broadcast, textual healing live, and maybe even a new chapter of A Robins Amongst The Pigeons! May contain scenes of #maximumshunting. If the above doesn't make sense to you then do something about it and listen to the duo's podcast! John Robins commented:- "For over 2 years now Elis and I have been flying the flag for a number of grassroots issues: session ales below 4.5%, 19th Century Welsh communists and the rock band Queen, so it seems fitting that we've sold out this historic venue with a plug on our podcast, a handful of tweets and inevitably, the odd email."
