"a relentlessly smiley, perpetually grinning Londoner whose unshowy, unpretentious but thoroughly funny shtick has every chance of winning him a big audience… " The Guardian
Rob Beckett 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 2010’, ‘Outside The Box New Act of the Year 2010’, ‘Leicester Square Theatre New Act of the Year 2009’ and ‘Reading Comedy Festival New Act of the Year 2009’ as well as being nominated for the prestigious Adelaide Fringe Best Newcomer Award 2011.
Rob grew up in south east London in a large extended family of taxi drivers where it was a fight to be heard. As a middle child desperate for attention he needed to be funny so was in awe of his Grandad's jokes, but only until he saw a Tommy Cooper video and realised Grandad Cook was a massive plagiarist. 'A little short of a revelation (The Scotsman) 'Relentlessly smiley, perpetually grinning Londoner whose unshowy, unpretentious but thoroughly funny shtick has every chance of winning him a big audience' (The Guardian). 'He already has the confidence of a veteran' (The Times). 'Joyous, cheek aching and touching stand up' (Shortlist). Rob Beckett was placed in Ents24's top 10 hardest-working comedians 2016.
