Britain’s “crossest comic” gets personal

Welsh-born stand-up Rhod Gilbert got into comedy in 2002 and quickly started picking up rave reviews. In 2005, his debut Edinburgh Fringe show earned him a Perrier Newcomer nomination, and he found himself rising up the bill with each successive stand-up run since – with his 2010 and 2012 shows (The Cat That Looked Like Nicholas Lyndhurst and The Man With The Flaming Battenberg Tattoo) also filmed for bestselling DVDs.

As one of the UK’s leading comedy talents, Gilbert has also spent years as a star of television and radio. He has amassed nine series of his hugely popular Rhod Gilbert’s Work Experience and has hosted two series of Rhod Gilbert’s Growing Pains for Comedy Central, as well as racking up regular appearances on Have I Got News For You?QiWould I Lie to You? and 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown. Gilbert has also hosted Live At The Apollo on multiple occasions and performed on The Royal Variety Performance, alongside starring in series seven of the Bafta award-winning gameshow, Taskmaster

Gilbert’s 2019 comeback show, Book Of John, saw the comic reflecting on his toughest years with a personal, raw and deeply funny confessional that finds the dark humour in hitting rock bottom. The show was met with widespread critical acclaim and every performance sold out, including six nights at Cardiff Arena and ten nights at the EICC in Edinburgh. Gilbert was in the middle of his tour when the pandemic forced him to put things on hold, with all postponed dates rescheduled for 2021.

In September 2021, Gilbert announced a set of new dates to extend his sell-out tour into 2022. 

“Right, my Book Of John tour isn’t going to do itself, so it’s time I got back out on the road,” says Gilbert. “Seeing as most of the shows that were postponed are already sold out, I'm sticking in a load of extra UK dates and extending the tour into 2022.”


Gilbert is touring throughout 2021, and has also announced an extra set of UK tour dates running until June 2022.  

Tickets for Gilbert's 2021 shows are on sale now.

The presale for the extra dates starts at 10.00 on Monday 4 October, 2021, with general sale from 10.00 on Wednesday 6 October.
