Rob Auton: The Time Show review – twinkling hour of clock-watching
Assembly George Square Studios, EdinburghIn a wistful show with playful paradoxes, the comic ruminates on the little round face on our wrists and what it means‘Did the people who set time going really think time would stand the test of time?” Rob Auton’s The Time Show is full of playful paradoxes such as this.

And “what is time without numbers? Maybe it’s like painting without numbers.” More expressive. Freer. Up to us. Continue reading...
