334 – Robby Collins

Posted 4 years ago on April 2nd, 2020.

*This episode was recorded before the pandemic if you’re looking for a breath of fresh air*

A tub-thumping powerhouse of a comedian basking in a laidback rhythm, Robby Collins is a devoted student of comedy.  We talk about how he made his obsession into his art, from renting and re-renting DVDs of the greats as a youth, to opening for Trevor Noah on world tours. We also cover re-learning how to socialise outside the industry, and the long road to making comedy out of the suicide attempt of a family member…

25 mins worth of extras available exclusively to the Insiders Club include Robby going into detail on the lessons he learnt from opening for Trevor Noah and Dave Chapelle, how to make an audience come to you, and how to cut out all the waiting time between thought and performance.
