10. Rhod Gilbert - The Book of John

Princess Theatre, Torquay

Sunday 1st November 2020

Returning to the Princess Theatre Rhod Gilbert brings his critically acclaimed stand up show 'The Book of John' for a second time following the success of the same show in May 2019. Lucky enough to watch this show in May from the front row we can vouch for the classic high quality we're used to expecting with Rhod's joke writing and story telling.

This show sees Rhod as funny as ever, but like never before. Raw, personal and brutally honest; no more lies, no more nonsense.

Tickets from £31.90 are available at the link below

9. Tom Rosenthal - Manhood

Exeter Northcott Theatre, Exeter

Friday 20th November 2020

Let the beaky boy from hit sitcom Friday Night Dinner and Plebs tell you the story of how he spent his life trying to avenge the theft of his foreskin. Previous winner of the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year and nominated for Best Breakthrough Artist at the British Comedy Awards, you might also have seen Tom as the drunkest guy on Drunk History, sassing Chris Ramsey in an epic Roast Battle and getting overly competitive in a pub quiz.

Possibly most well known to the layman as "those sisters that sang the song on those Halifax adverts" Flo and Joan are very experienced and well respected within the comedy industry.

Jimmy knows that terrible things happen in life – but he believes the best way to cope is to make jokes about those events and not to worry about political correctness. His audiences have been warned.
