What folks are saying about Robin:
“Robin was absolutely amazing to work with and hilarious to boot! As someone who books at a lot of LGBT talent each year, Robin was by far one of the best, most on point, and downright enjoyable comics I have ever worked with. Two snaps!" - Matthew Carcella, Cornell University
She was very professional, hilarious and loved by all ! When in need of a good laugh, I will definitely hire her again in the future.” - Diane Jeep Ries
She had the audience rolling in the aisles. Her set was fine tuned to our queer women of color clientele. She had those non profiters in hysterics. Robin was the perfect choice. I’d use her again and again.”
