BRITAIN'S GOT TALENT RUNNER-UP 2018
Robert White is the only gay, Aspergic, quarter-Welsh comic on the British comedy circuit. Known for his brilliant timing and performance style, Robert’s chaotic stage presence, improvisational skills and delivery won him the 2010 Malcolm Hardee Award for Comic Originality. In the same year, he wrote one of Dave’s Top Ten Jokes of The Fringe.
Robert shot into the mainstream this year when he was runner-up on UK’s biggest television talent competition, Britain's Got Talent. His performances were typically anarchic but hilarious. His madcap stage presence, improvised songs and unique approach to comedy won over the judges, audience and viewers at home from the very first episode of the show all the way through to the final.
“Robert White killed with this show, matching an amazing presence to clever jokes and pitch-perfect delivery’ ’Just brilliant.” ★★★★ Chortle
“Get him on Shooting Stars - Robert White’s show is a jaw-dropping riot…the mix of lewd innuendo, cheesy jokes, music hall songs played on a knackered keyboard and sound-effects games makes for a side-splitting hour.” ★★★★ The List

“Fantastically original gags.” Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke
“Could be a contender to follow in the footsteps of Milton Jones.” Chortle

Having only started on the circuit in 2016, her anecdotal material and self-deprecating charm have quickly won her praise up and down the country. Winning So You Think You're Funny last year and being crowned Amused Moose best Newcomer this August, as well as gaining a nomination for Best Newcomer. Clearly big things are on the horizon. She is a comedian who leaves the audience belly laughing, giving standing ovations, throwing roses onstage, naming their babies after her - but most importantly, she is a comedian who never exaggerates.
"Exudes an appealing, quirky energy and is clearly a natural wit." Chortle
