Beckett, R

Your host for the night will be Rob Beckett, who has come to standup from the event industry, and according to one Times critic “he already has the confidence of a veteran”.

With south London cheek and man-of-the-people charm, Rob takes a look at the absurdities of the world, the quirks of his family life, the strangeness of the middle classes, and why silly pranks are brilliant.

After storming the So You Think You’re Funny? competition Rob was immediately invited to perform at the Adelaide Festival. He’s since toured with Russell Kane and Stephen K Amos before embarking on his own sell-out UK tours. He’s graduated from regular guest to team captain on 8 Out Of 10 Cats, and has appeared on Mock the Week, Taskmaster, Live at the Apollo, and student sitcom Fresh Meat. He co-hosted I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! Now! for ITV2, is a regular on Comedy Central’s hit Drunk Histories, and has even delivered his opinions on late-night political show This Week.
