COMEDY genius Rhod Gilbert, who is set to leave your sides sore from laughing, will be delivering another infamous live show this year.

Following several sell-out UK tours and some best-selling stand-up DVDs, the multi-award winning Welsh wonder is back on the road.

As a regular on Live At The Apollo and with his own BBC One show Ask Rhod Gilbert, he’s one of the world’s hottest comedians.

Rhod’s brand new live show, The Man with the Flaming Battenberg Tattoo, will give you all of the whimsical excitement of his previous shows, including his rants and random life experiences with a new release of fresh comedy gold.

His stand-up rages on life’s minor irritations are legendary, but this year, he’s a more mellow fellow altogether.

He’s now so laid-back he even let someone tattoo a battenberg on him. Will the new, chilled-out Rhod get his girl and live happily ever after, or will it be a microwaved baked potato for one again? This new show could provide the Mr Angry of comedy as you’ve never seen him before.

Rhod’s show, The Man with the Flaming Battenberg Tattoo, will be at the Colston Hall on November 20 at 8pm. Tickets, priced £25, are available from the box office on 0117 9223686 or via boxoffice@colstonhall.org
