Harrogate Comedy Festival: Rob Beckett
Multi award winning comedian Rob Beckett and his trademark grin will be travelling across the country with his highly anticipated debut UK tour. The plan for the show is for you to laugh a lot and leave happier than when you arrived.
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.
