Leave To Enter: [noun]
1. Permission for entry to the United Kingdom granted by British immigration officers.
2. Something Nick Robertson was denied.

Fresh off the back of a critically acclaimed season at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, 'Leave To Enter' is an hour of captivating and hilarious storytelling. From being detained for ten hours in Edinburgh Airport, to Nick's obsession with Scooby Doo (2002), come spend an hour with this 'exquisite storyteller' (The Age) as he spares no detail recounting the time the most Scottish looking person, with the most Scottish last name, was denied leave to enter in Scotland.

'Leave To Enter' is packed with hard laughs, painted with a soft touch. It's a story about being displaced, a story about Candy Crush, a story about Nick's mum.

'Genius' - Tim Minchin

'A skilful handle of the audience well-past his years... harnesses narrative abilities akin to that of Sarah Kendall or Cassie Workman.' - The Age
