About Rhod Gilbert – The Book of John Live at New Theatre, Oxford
Welsh sensation Rhod Gilbert is one of the UK’s leading comedy talents. He has enjoyed many successful years as a star of television and radio and continues to uphold his esteemed reputation as a seasoned host, prolific writer and first-class live performer.
It has been six years since his last stand-up tour, though he’s hardly been idle in that time, hosting various TV programmes – among them The Apprentice: You’re Fired!, BBC Wales’s long-running Rhod Gilbert’s Work Experience, Would I Lie to You?, “Have I Got News for You?” and Never Mind the Buzzcocks (until it was canned), and much more…although Rod describes almost all of it as s**t.
And just when he thought he’d hit rock bottom, he met a bloke… called John.
So the multi-award-winning Welsh comedian is back, with a brand new live show that sees Rhod as funny as ever, but like never before. Raw, personal and brutally honest; no more lies, no more nonsense.
