After a sell-out autumn tour, Rob Beckett, the star of BBC’s Live at The Apollo, Mock The Week and Channel 4’s8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, brings his brand new show Mouth of The South to Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts on 16 March – and he’s taking on the big issues like Kit Kats and flatbread!
Rob burst onto the comedy circuit only five years ago but within his first year he had won four new act competitions including ‘Amused Moose Laugh Off’, ‘Outside The Box New Act of the Year’, ‘Leicester Square Theatre New Act of the Year’ and ‘Reading Comedy Festival New Act of the Year’, as well as being nominated for the prestigious Adelaide Fringe Best Newcomer Award.
After quickly establishing himself on the circuit, Rob’s cheeky chappy persona saw him winning fans by starring on numerous TV shows including; ITV1’s Sunday Night at The Palladium, Would I Lie to You on BBC1, ITV2’sI’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here Now! (2012, 2013 & 2014), Celebrity Juice, Drunk History on Comedy Central plus the recently aired Play to The Whistle and The Jonathan Ross Show on ITV1.
Rob hosts a weekly afternoon show on Absolute Radio. Rock ‘N’ Roll Football airs every Sunday between 2 and 6pm. Outside the realms of stand-up Rob is also an actor having recently starred in Channel 4’s Fresh Meat.
