Always Be Comedy: The Tommyfield Pub, Kennington, London, 2018
Popular Welsh comedian Rhod Gilbert did a full preview show at Always Be Comedy in September 2018. I have seen him live on a number of occasions in the past but his performance this evening was outstanding and one of the funniest things I have ever seen at the club. From the start with me removing a piece of chewing gum from the bottom of his shoe turning this unlucky mishap into a hilarious full blown routine to the honesty in what he was saying on stage to an extremely funny piece about an unfortunate incident in a hospital, the master comic returned after a six year break to a well deserved standing ovation after an hour a half on stage. If this performance is anything to go by, his comeback tour in 2019 entitled The Book of John will be amazing. I was still laughing out loud on the bus home and wish him every success with the new show.
