ROB BECKETT: THE MOUTH OF THE SOUTH TOUR | COMEDY PREVIEW
Comedian and, debatably, owner of Britain’s whitest teeth, Rob Beckett is headed for the South Wales Valleys. His Mouth of the South tour comes off the back of a stellar career on the British comedy circuit.
The London born brother of four began performing stand-up in 2009 and quickly set about making his mark. Beckett’s debut performances on a series of comedy competitions landed him with the opportunity to break Australia. The cheeky cockney struck gold down-under with his appearance at the Adelaide Fringe Festival earning him a nomination for best newcomer. Now a veteran comedian, Beckett has a string of live gigs under his belt including two national tours and his solo debut at the eclectic Edinburgh Fringe.
Rob’s live witticisms have propelled him to TV fame with regular television appearances featuring on blistering shows including Live at the Apollo, 8 Out of 10 Cats, and Mock the Week – to name a few. He centres on the observational and delivers side-splitting insights on everything from truffle cutters to stag dos – guaranteed to leave any audience in stitches. Beckett has deservedly had a raft of rave reviews praising him for his likeable comic charm and uniquely funny insights. With reviews like these, it’s no wonder that he always seems to have a cheeky grin on his gargantuanly-toothed face.
The Mouth of the South tour will see the grinning comic play dates throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland with the Valley towns of Aberdare, Brecon and Maesteg all featuring. Brecon’s Theatr Brycheiniog will host the first of the three dates at the end of February, followed by Maesteg’s Town Hall in early March and Aberdare’s Coliseum Theatre being his last Welsh tour date.
Rob Beckett’s relatable humour, cheeky charm and shimmering teeth have dazzled audiences from Dublin to down-under, so look out for him when he makes his way to the Valleys.
