John finds an interesting back story to stand up for
John Robins (pictured) is the latest maverick to burst out of Bristol's hotbed of comic talent and he is bringing his new show to Devon and Cornwall.
In 2011, he was replaced on a TV panel show by The Only Way Is Essex star Amy Childs. According to the producer, she had a better "back story". So John scoured his past for anecdotes and stories to prove them wrong. What he's discovered is revealed in his hilarious new show, intriguingly entitled Incredible Scenes , directed by comedy star Russell Howard, John's former flatmate.
John has guested on Russell's BBC3 show Russell Howard's Good News and he can be heard on BBC 6Music, TalkSport and BBC Radio 4. As a bonus, John is bringing along comedian Henry Widdicombe – who plays regular support to Rhod Gilbert – as his special guest.
John Robins presents Incredible Scenes! at The Bike Shed, Exeter (01392 434169 ) at 9pm on Friday, January 25 as part of the city's LOL comedy festival; He brings the show to Calstock Arts at The Old Chapel, Calstock, south east Cornwall at 8pm on Saturday, February 2. Box office: 01822 833183. Doors and bar open at 7pm.

Schools learning through play with theatre project
School Ties is a project which encourages young people to explore what really goes into getting a production from page to stage. All that you see has been created and produced by young people from two Plymouth schools – Eggbuckland Community College and Austin Farm Primary School; from the writing and performing right through to the marketing and sales. School Ties aims to develop confidence in students as they make the transition from primary to secondary school and to build creativity and self-belief across the curriculum. They have been working with professional playwrights to create a new play to be performed by the other school. Eggbuckland Community College students have written A Girl Called Eva, about a shy girl who wants to fit in – but will revealing her secret help everyone to accept her? Austin Farm Primary School pupils have written The Lemons' Labyrinth Lives, following twins who go into foster care.
The plays will be performed in the Drum Theatre between January 30 and February 1. Box Office: 01752 267222.
