Rob Brydon Live! sees the star of Gavin And Stacey and Marion And Geoff bring his own inimitable stand up show to London’s Apollo theatre.
Brydon’s pet topics are central to his one-man show, Rob Brydon Live! These include views close to his heart such as becoming a dad at 42, the horrors of home-birthing, his obsession with owning new and unnecessary gadgets and his pondering on being Welsh and why Wales elicits such rabid, fun-poking by the rest of the country.
Rob Brydon Live! also sees the comedian returns to his love of improvisation, which means the audience has no choice but to be involved. The chat is tempered by Brydon’s love of music, and his trusty guitar sees him grinnin’ and pickin’ his way through his personal favourites.
Brydon, a former radio and television presenter for BBC Wales, first came to prominence in 2000 when he starred in comedy Marion And Geoff, a series he also co-wrote. Playing taxi driver Keith Barret, Brydon would deliver monologues to a fixed camera in his cab, telling of the divorce from his wife Marion who had begun a new relationship with his colleague, Geoff. The ever-positive Barret became such a popular character that he received his own spin-off talk show.
Brydon, currently a regular in recent comedy hit Gavin And Stacey, has also appeared in films including A Cock And Bull Story and is a regular on television and radio panel shows.
Rob Brydon Live! comes to the Apollo theatre following a UK tour that began in November 2008.
