Description

The multi award-winning Welsh comedian is back with a brand-new live show. In a seven-year break from stand-up, a lot has happened to Rhod. Almost all of it shit. Just when he thought he'd hit rock bottom, he met a bloke... called John. This show sees Rhod as funny as ever, but like never before. Raw, personal and brutally honest; no more lies, no more nonsense. As seen on Rhod Gilbert's Work Experience, Would I Lie to You?, Taskmaster, QI, The Apprentice: You're Fired, Live at The Apollo, Have I Got News for You.

I just love Rhod Gilbert anyway so it was great to catch him at the Fringe and I just loved the set right from the “frozen prawn” episode all the way through. Venue was very splooshy with super comfy seats so sadly it didn’t feel really part of the Fringe.

Rhod G was hilarious as ever. A total pro and a great venue with comfy seats

Playing to such a large audience (packed house) must be a difficult task for any comedian, but Mr Gilbert smashed it. He was engagingly funny as he spoke of personal difficulties which he had turned into stage material. The friendship with John was however the crux of the show. A slow start but the pace built well and there many laughs along the way. I know these stars like to get the cash in by playing the big venues, but wouldn’t it be magic where the artist does not have to work so hard to get to so many people. Less shouting, less running around. Good one.

From two thirds of the way up the auditorium in the EICC I could have been watching any rumpled, skinny bloke running around to a Rhod Gilbert voiceover. I loathe watching comedy in a venue like this, especial...
