Fresh off his hugely popular stint on Taskmaster, Rhod Gilbert’s eccentric self is back on stage following a long six-year stand-up break. The show explores the hiatus he has had from comedy and what’s since gone on in between, which turns out to be…quite a lot. More personal than ever, he brings a fresh and brutally honest set to the Dome to discuss meeting with a man named John, who apparently changed his life for the better.

This comedy sketch show, featuring ‘Allo ‘Allo’s Vicki Michelle takes its audience through the trials and tribulations of modern-day womanhood, all with a glass of wine in hand, obviously. No topic is left untouched; weight loss, men, sex, therapy and even Zumba! The cheeky and camp show is strutting its way into the Theatre Royal this month. It’s expected to be brash, shameless and unapologetically crass.
