Award winning comedian Rob Brydon and his eight-piece band will take to the road next year with a brand new show, Rob Brydon - Songs and Stories. This is the first time that Brydon has created a show that includes songs and music as well as his acclaimed wit and comedy.
With songs from Sondheim to Rodgers and Hammerstein, from Paul Simon to Tom Waits and almost everything in between, audiences can expect Rob’s usual warmth and humour as well as some of his famed gallery of voices.
Rob is aware that some people might be taken aback by what they might perceive as a change of tack with "Songs & Stories". He said of his new show: "It will take some people by surprise. There are so many media outlets nowadays that some people might only know me from Gavin and Stacey or Would I Lie To You?. Those people often say to me, 'I didn't know you could sing', and yet I have sung a lot. I hope this show is a very pleasant surprise for audiences."
This Swansea-born radio and TV presenter got his big break in 2001 with a series of short comedy monologues, 'Marion And Geoff', which were shown on BBC2. This was followed by further TV appearances as Keith Barret, presenter of a spoof chat show and, perhaps most notably, Bryn West in the sitcom 'Gavin & Stacey'. Rob's career began at Radio Wales at the age of 20 where he narrated many radio shows, adverts and animated films, as well as later appearing on television shows and films. His stand-up shows have been equally successful, with sold out shows around the UK. His film work includes The Huntsman: Winter’s War, Cinderella and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. In 2017 in London's West End he starred opposite Sir Kenneth Branagh in The Painkiller. His other theatre credits include Future Conditional at The Old Vic and A Chorus of Disapproval at The Harold Pinter Theatre.
