What a find - we only went into avoid the rain!
Great and witty puns with a blend of comedy tunes and speaking. Show flowed well and had links within it. Great stage presence, a great show. Well worth seeing.

Went to see the show on the recommendation of my son and was not expecting much to be honest. How wrong was I ? Fantastic show. Technically gifted musicianship and brilliant comedy. Don't miss it

What a great way to start our day. Robin’s refreshing mix of guitar rock and easy comedy (not easy!) is endearing and hilarious. Intimate venue. A true crowd pleaser. And his Country Song - truly one of the great ballads of all time. Wow, loved it!

Seeing Robin rock his audience’s socks off is the perfect start to any day at the Fringe, and has become a ‘must see’. Clever wordplay, scorching guitar riffs, big laughs, and excellent hair. And still the only person to be able to get the words ‘front bottom’ into a rock song. Saw the show a week ago, only just posting my review now because I’ve been looking for my flippin’ socks...
Keep on rockin’ In the Free Fringe, Robin!

5 star show. Excellent way to spend an hour. Very funny jokes , expert guitar player. Entertaining and engaging performer who gets the whole audience rocking along.

Rock music, puns, a rocking hairdo and a potential chance of nudity (yet to go to a show where it hasn't been requested or suggested). A perfect blend of the unsubtle puns, the loud but on point music and a few puns that fill the room with a great laugh when the audience got the joke.

A spot on sense of humour and music mixes to create a show that I just couldn't help but enjoy. If you can't help but laugh at crude puns and head bang along with the best, go see Robin, perhaps once he might even fall for one of those requested nudity moments?

Third time we’ve been to the Fringe and seen Robin Boot each time. Always a brilliant show. Very funny rock songs and jokes. Fantastic interaction with the audience. Highly recommended.

A rock guitar-playing punsmith may sound like it has a niche appeal to a certain type of Fringegoer, but Robin Boot’s early afternoon show in Whistlebinkies managed to pull in a crowd with a 50-year age range, and left nobody disappointed.Boot kicks off from the back of the room, dropping...
