Since turning professional in 2002, award-winning funnyman Rhod Gilbert has become a regular face (and voice) on television and radio panel shows, performed stand-up on the Royal Variety Performance, and travelled the world performing his deadpan stand-ups routines - not bad for a man who only got into comedy "thanks to a girlfriend’s constant nagging".
An instant success, Gilbert's first solo show (titled 1984) was nominated for the Perrier Newcomer award at the 2005 Edinburgh Fringe, while his subsequent tours and DVDs have showcased the Welshman as one of the UK's most consistent performers.
