Rob Auton: The Time Show


Rob Auton brings his Edinburgh sell out show to the Tom Thumb. ‘The Time Show’ is the latest comedy/theatre/spoken word show by writer and performer of some of what he writes Rob Auton.  Following on from his critically acclaimed shows about talking, hair, sleep, water, faces, the sky and the colour yellow, Rob now turns his attention to time. He will be asking questions such as “What time is it?” and “What is it time?”
