Soon, he could be playing to thousands' (Time Out) 'Plenty of original insights and honest home-truths to enjoy' (Chortle) 'A classy young stand-up and, a headliner in the making' (London Is funny).

Rob Rouse

Rob Rouse appearing at this event

'He is a great storyteller... prepared to go to the bleakest and most uncomfortable places... The tears of laughter came in floods’ (The Scotsman). 'Frankly brilliant' (www.SuchSmallPortions.com) 'Brilliant' (Chortle) 'A carefully weighted hour of comedic storytelling' (Fest) 'Missing This show means missing something wonderful' (Edinburgh Evening News).
