Rhod Gilbert: The Book of John

Saturday 09 October 2021

Congress Theatre

It has been a while, but the multi-award-winning Welsh comedian is back, with a brand new live show.  In a seven-year break from stand-up, a lot has happened to Rhod.  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.  Raw, personal and brutally honest; no more lies, no more nonsense.

Tour extended due to phenomenal demand. 

As seen on Rhod Gilbert’s Work Experience, Would I Lie to You?, Taskmaster, Qi, Live at The Apollo, Have I Got News for You?, and much more...
