ROB ROUSE - Are You Sitting Comfortably?

He’s married, has two kids, a dog and an eye-watering mortgage, (is in debt) in these times of austerity and uncertainty, but remains resolute that a career in unpredictable world of comedy was absolutely the right way to go. (It’s far too late to try something else now.)

Rob takes this trademark comedic storytelling to a career high in this full length show, as he leads us on an irresistibly hilarious journey of enforced introspection, that has taught him 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.

Most definitely a middle-aged bloke Rob happily holds his hands up as being about as ‘un-sexy’ as it’s possible to be in terms of broad brush ‘Key Marketing Demographics’*, but as a stand-up, he is in the form of his life.

*Rob sincerely believes there is a currently ‘un-tapped’ key demographic out there for him and you, dear reader are it.

'Belly laugh funny' Herald

'He’s a man with genuinely funny bones' Sunday Times

'The tears of laughter came in floods… a sustained piece of observational storytelling which just peaked and peaked…' Scotsman

Rob stars as ‘Bottom’, (Shakespeare’s manservant) in ‘Upstart Crow’ BBC show written by Ben Elton

Rob has also appeared in 8 out of 10 cats, Dave’s One Night Stand, The Friday Night Project, Spoons, Celebrity Juice, Live at the Comedy Store,
