Rhod Gilbert & The Giant Grapefruit

Multi-award-winning comedian Rhod Gilbert is bouncing back with a brand new live show, Rhod Gilbert & the Giant Grapefruit.

Rhod is embarking on a full UK & Ireland tour, playing more than 90 dates and running until October 2025.

Previously, Rhod was dealing with some pretty pungent life citrus and an idiot called John. Little did he know that things were about to turn even more sour.

But Rhod’s not bitter; he’s bouncing back and feeling remarkably zesty. Hilariously dark, passionate and way too personal, this is classic Gilbert, squeezing every last drop out of life’s latest curveballs… with a little help from an old adversary.

What the critics say

“Darkly Hilarious. It’s good to have him back.”

The Times

“Hilarious Tour-De-Force.”

The Telegraph

“Volcanic, high-octance humour.”

The Guardian

“Without doubt, one of the best comedians anywhere in the world.”
