Rhod Gilbert and the Award Winning Mince Pie  - One4Review

After a few years in the doldrums someone seems to have found a rich vein of comedians in Wales, Rob Brydon, Mark Watson for example, and for me the best of them all Rhod Gilbert. I have followed his progress over the last few years and have to say he is one of the best on the circuit as far as I am concerned and the bursting at the seems Pleasance Cabaret Bar seem to agree with me. Gilbert owns his room from the onset with some local and topical gags before settling into his show about the title of his show a real story if you are to believe the man accused of always making things up. He has the ability to play to the excess of 100 people but still make it feel you’re are having a chat with him over a pint, and a whole lot of excellent material and anecdotes that keep the enthusiastic crowd doubled up with laughter around such topics, as torches, welsh valley social clubs, motorway service stations, age gaps in partnerships, corporate awards and of course mince pies. Gilbert is great value for his money, far more laughs per minute than a lot of alternatives and he comes across as a nice guy to boot. I for one would forget award winning mice pies, and think it’s about time we had an award winning Welsh comedian IF anyone is listening. *****
