Robin Clyfan The sea is big enough to take it 4**** - One4Review
one4review | On 24, Aug 2018
Talented writer, performer and actor, Robin Clyfan has appeared on BBC Radio 4, Radio 6 Music and BBC iPlayer’s Best of the Fringe. He’s the host of the Moth Story Slam, a highly esteemed podcast.
At 6ft 2”, Robin just about squeezes into this double decker bus of a venue. It’s an intimate venue for what is at times the most intense and poignant of shows. Robin talks us through his childhood years, he shares life’s growing pains and humorously recalls the many curious birthday parties. Through the use of recordings, we get to know quite a bit about his mother and her political activism. Later we hear of her illness and passing. Its a very moving moment when we finally learn what the show’s title really means.
It’s not a dark show at all. Its lively and very funny. Robin is a master of accents and these are skilfully used to conjure up a variety of characters. His tales of hosting T In the Park and the “big baby” sketch are highlights not to be missed.
