“A crazy totally true story about when I was 19 and my life went tits-up.”
WHO: Robert White, Performer in a Solo Show
WHAT: “Malcolm Hardee Award-winning, gay, autistic comedian adopts a new stance. For the first time combining his musical composition talents with his well-honed comedy chops, Robert presents a fully orchestrated comedy opera of unbelievable, but true, misadventures and misfortune. An untold story: a Stephen Fry-type coming-of-age tale of a confused homosexual’s abusive beard situation generates autistic freak-out enabling seriously daft criminal conviction. A bonkers yarn presented with a Mozart spirit and some wrong notes.”
WHERE: Gilded Balloon Teviot (Venue 14)
WHEN: 15:15 (60 min)

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
This is my fourth time. The first time was awful as my show didn’t happen and I just ended up working as a dogs body for someone who hated me, my second time was great and I won an award and my third time was great and I didn’t win an award.
Tell us about your show.
My show is a one-man comedy opera , although it wouldn’t be opera in the way that most people would understand it, containing; props, puns, jokes, recorded music, live music , singing, recitation, poetry and a crazy totally true story about when I was 19 and my life went tits-up due to a ridiculous faux criminal incident, that came from an autistic mental breakdown, which grew out of a reaction to a highly tense relationship, that I got into due to denial of my sexuality.
All of the show I’ve made or produced or composed or written or otherwise created myself.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
My favourite comedian is Terry Alderton, he just particularity tickles my funny bone, every time, so if people ask I say him. I haven’t seen his show, he isn’t with the same agent as me, or PR or whatever, and I probably should recommend a friend, but I’m spoiled for choice on that score, so I’ll just say the bloke who I think is the best ever, hope that helps.
