Never miss another 'Rob Rouse' show
Life Sentences: Rob Rouse
Now firmly established as one of the circuit's favourite stand-ups, Rob's previous two UK stand up tours (My Family And The Dog That Scared Jesus and The Great Escape ) both took him the length and breadth of Britain, delighting audiences and garnering critical acclaim. Now he's back with his biggest ever UK tour this autumn.
Having become a father for the second time, this time to a baby girl, Rob now finds himself becoming a staunch radical feminist, albeit trapped inside the body of an emotionally stifled 38 year old man. However, this is not a stand up show about men vs. women, more humanity vs. insanity. Not a battle of the sexes, but a battle for the sexes. It's the expression of one man's utter befuddlement at the unmitigated arse-mongery surrounding modern life and the confusion of bringing a daughter into a seemingly ever-more distorted world where a Vagazzle has apparently become something to aspire to.
WARNING: Not suitable for children or your prissy Aunty. If you don't fall into either of these categories, you should love it.
An English comedian known for his hyperactive brand of humour. Since winning Channel Four's prestigious 'So You Think You're Funny' Competition at the Edinburgh Festival in 1998, an award previously won by Phil Kay, Dylan Moran, Lee Mack, Tommy Tiernan and Peter Kay, he has been a regular performer at major venues on both the London and National circuit.
With more energy than a hyperactive six-year-old sucking on a lollipop while bouncing on a space-hopper, he is a veteran of several critically acclaimed Edinburgh Festival shows, three sold out national theatre tours and a New Zealand tour, firmly establishing him as one of comedy's most lively, amenable and dynamic performers.
'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' (http://www.SuchSmallPortions.com)
'A carefully weighted hour of comedic storytelling' (Fest)
'Missing This show means missing something wonderful' (Edinburgh Evening News).
