Rhod Gilbert (2025)

Galway Comedy Festival 2025 — RHOD GILBERT & THE GIANT GRAPEFRUIT (2025)

Rhod Gilbert (2025)

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.

Rhod is a regular on hit panel shows QiWould I Lie To You? and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown and has taken part in the Bafta-award winning series Taskmaster.  As a stand-up, he has performed on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and Live At the Apollo – performing iconic stand-up sets and hosting twice. He has also had the honour of performing three times on The Royal Variety Performance.  

After a six-year hiatus, Rhod returned to stand-up in 2019 and embarked upon a mammoth nationwide tour with his highly-anticipated new show entitled The Book of John.  The show was met with widespread critical acclaim and scooped an award for ‘Best Tour‘ in the 2020 Chortle Awards.  Rhod played over 200 dates nationwide, with extra dates added due to overwhelming demand. 


When life gives Rhod lemons... 

In his last show ‘The Book of John’, 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.

"Darkly hilarious. It's good to have him back" - Times 

"Hilarious tour-de-force" - Telegraph

"Volcanic, high-octane humour. Uproariously funny" - Guardian
