Rhod Gilbert: The Book of John

6 - 8 Jun 2019

It has been a while, but the multi-award-winning Welsh comedian is back, with a brand new live show.  In a six-year break from stand-up, a lot has happened to Rhod.  Almost all of it s**t.   
And 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?’, and much more…
