Rob Beckett - Mouth of the South

Multi-award winning comedian and rising star Rob Beckett presents his debut stand-up solo show. He’s from South East London, was in Fresh Meat (C4), has appeared on 8 out of 10 Cats (C4) and has recently trekked into the Jungle on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Now as a host. He also has nice teeth.

Comedy is Rob’s job and shows are technically business trips, but he enjoys it far too much to call it work: he’s on holiday. In this highly anticipated show Rob explores expectations, family and Jeremy Beadle.
