Rhod Gilbert and the Giant Grapefruit

The Courtyard Hereford is thrilled to announce that renowned comedian Rhod Gilbert will be back performing a sold-out show on Monday 15 April 2024. With his unique blend of hilariously dark humour, passion, and personal anecdotes, Rhod Gilbert promises to deliver an evening of entertainment that will leave audiences in stitches.

In his last show, ‘The Book of John,’ Rhod Gilbert skilfully navigated the challenges of life with a touch of citrusy humour and an encounter with an unforgettable character named John. Little did he know that his journey was about to take a turn for the even more sour. However, true to his resilient nature, Rhod is not bitter. Instead, he is bouncing back, ready to face life’s curveballs head-on and share his experiences with his audience.

“Rhod’s ability to find laughter in the darkest corners of life is truly remarkable,” says David Durant, Associate Director of The Courtyard Hereford. “His unique comedic style and ability to connect with audiences on a personal level have earned him a dedicated following. We are delighted to welcome him back to The Courtyard and provide our patrons with an evening of unforgettable laughter.”

Rhod Gilbert’s latest show, aptly titled ‘When life gives Rhod lemons…,’ promises to be a rollercoaster ride of emotions, as he delves deep into his personal experiences and reveals how he has managed to squeeze every last drop out of life’s latest curveballs. And, as always, he will receive a little help from an old adversary, adding a delightful twist to the evening’s entertainment.

With his wit, charisma, and sharp observational skills, Rhod Gilbert has become one of the most sought-after comedians in the industry. His numerous appearances on television shows such as ‘Mock the Week,’ ‘8 Out of 10 Cats,’ and ‘Live at the Apollo’ have cemented his status as a comedy icon. Rhod has received numerous accolades throughout his career, including the Time Out Award for Best Comedy Breakthrough Act and the Chortle Award for Best Headliner.

Tickets for Rhod Gilbert in The Courtyard’s Main House on Monday 15 April have sold out rapidly. Comedy fans are able to call Box Office and add their name to the waiting list.
