John Robertson - Blood & Charm: Disturbing Stories for Disturbing Bedtimes
Tightly-scripted surreal monologue full of fascinating true stories
This article is from 2011.
Australian Idol reject Robertson has constructed a tightly-scripted monologue full of fascinating true stories. He wraps his infectiously toothy grin around an autobiographical tale festooned with convoluted gags and dreamlike meanderings. The surreal asides are so tightly interwoven that sometimes it’s difficult to separate fact from fiction although it all fits into his philosophy that ‘nothing means anything’.
