TV comic heading for Furness
Last updated at 13:29, Thursday, 26 April 2012
TELEVISION comic Rob Rouse is to bring his live show to Barrow later this year.
Well-known for his hyperactive brand of humour, as well as appearances on Channel 4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats, The Friday Night Project and Dave’s One Night Stand, the Edinburgh Festival regular heads to The Forum on Saturday November 3.
His new tour, Life Sentences, which gives an honest and frank peek into the world of a long-suffering stand-up, was nominated for Best New Show at Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival.
A father for the second time, to a baby girl, Rob now describes himself as a radical feminist – but this is not a show about men v women, more humanity v insanity.
Since winning Channel Four’s prestigious So You Think You’re Funny competition at the Edinburgh Festival in 1998, an award previously won by Phil Kay, Dylan Moran, Lee Mack, Tommy Tiernan and Peter Kay, he has been a regular performer at major venues on both the London and national circuit.
Tickets for the show at The Forum are available from the venue’s box office.
