Following a six-year break from stand-up, multi-award-winning comedian Rhod Gilbert is bringing is new UK Tour to Wearside.
The Welsh wonder is set to embark upon a full UK tour in 2019, with a date at Sunderland Empire, Saturday 9 March 2019.
As one of the UK’s leading stand-up comedy talents, he has enjoyed many successful years as a star of television and radio.
He has amassed eight series of his hugely popular ‘Rhod Gilbert’s Work Experience’.
He is the current host of BBC2’s ‘The Apprentice: You’re Fired’ and is the former host of ‘Never Mind the Buzzcocks’.
He’s regularly hosted ‘Have I Got News for You?’ and has appeared countless times on ‘Qi’, ‘Would I Lie to You?’ and ‘8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown’.
He has hosted ‘Live at The Apollo’ on multiple occasions and has twice performed on ‘The Royal Variety Performance’.
He is set to appear in the forthcoming series of the Bafta award-winning ‘Taskmaster’.
A lot has happened to Rhod in the six years since he last toured. 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.
‘The Book of John’ is raw, personal and brutally honest; no more lies, no more nonsense.
This is Rhod, but different, the same, but not. Come along and see for yourself.
