Friday Night Live: Rob Rouse


Get the weekend started with FRIDAY NIGHT LIVE!

FRIDAY NIGHT LIVE is the new, epic one hour Friday comedy stand up night at Henry Tudor House – FRIDAY NIGHT LIVE will keep the laughs coming thick and fast, month after month. For each show we provide one brilliant hand-picked Comedian to give you the best start to the weekend at an incredible price.

As seen on Ben Elton’s hit BBC2 Shakespeare sitcom ‘Upstart Crow’ Standup Rob Rouse is taking to the stage at Henry Tudor House on Friday 13th September 2019.

Rob Rouse’s ‘Bottom’ received a warm welcome with viewers and critics alike on Elton’s keenly anticipated ‘Upstart Crow’ which first aired in the spring of 2016 and was voted ‘Best new sitcom’ on the British Comedy Guide, starring alongside David Mitchell, Harry Enfield, Mark Heap, Paula Wilcox, Gemma Whelan, Liza Tarbuck and Spencer Jones. The BBC2 show has catapulted the stand up comic back into the limelight.

One of comedy’s most lively, loveable and dynamic performers, Rob won Channel 4’s Prestigious So You Think You’re Funny competition at the Edinburgh Festival in way back in 1998. He’s one of our best comic storytellers, has performed all over the world and works long form narratives into hard-hitting, uncompromising hilarious tales filled with warmth and a sense of compassion for our collective human frailties.

The Ex-Geography teacher has been described critically as “A born clown”, those who really know him may lovingly use the word ‘idiot’. Either way, Rob takes this trademark comedic storytelling to a career high in this show, as he leads us on an irresistibly hilarious journey of enforced introspection and inspired rantings, it’s a real roller-coaster of a show in which he is forced to relinquish any attempts to control his life and to face down literally one of the most awkward situations you’re ever likely to hear about.

You may also recognise him from 8 out of 10 cats, Spoons, The Friday Night Project, Celebrity Juice, Dave’s One night stand, John Bishop’s Only Joking, Live at the Comedy store, maybe collecting one of his wife’s eBay purchases from your garage or perhaps seen him at one of his 8 Edinburgh fringe shows or 3 UK tours. So, come and see him do what he does best; honest, frank, seriously funny stand-up.
