Robert White is one of a kind. You may recognise him from Britain’s Got Talent 2018 (ITV) coming runner up after wooing the nation with his randomly unique act. He describes himself as the worlds best aspergers, gay, dyslexic, cross-lateral, web-toed comedian. All this makes stand-up the perfect career choice! Nevertheless, before discovering life as a comic he’s had an astonishing total of 67 jobs even including a stint as an organ player. Gags aplenty and a unique outlook on life make him a superb, consistently funny and inventive comedian. With talent to burn he’s also a super skilful musician, weaving catchy and compelling tunes into his hilarious act.
Known for his brilliant timing and performance style, Robert’s chaotic stage presence, improvisational skills and delivery won him the 2010 Malcolm Hardee Award for Comic Originality. In the same year, he wrote one of Dave’s Top Ten Jokes of The Fringe.

Since he first came onto the stand-up scene, as a finalist in the prestigious Hackney Empire Competition, Robert has gone from strength to strength. He is now a sought-after act who regularly performs across the country and internationally. His off the wall jokes, improvisatory songs, barely-believable stories and interactive music stand him far apart from the usual comedy available nationwide.

“If you want to see something brilliant, confusing and strange, you couldn’t do much better “– The Scotsman
