Host – Rob Deering
Rob Deering performs stand-up comedy with music, using a guitar, a loop pedal and his voice to create impressive rock and pop soundscapes – and do jokes, of course.
Along with being one of the most in-demand headliners on the UK circuit, he’s toured nationally and performed solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe many times since starting out in comedy in the year 2000. His late-night, live-music comedy pop quiz Beat This is a festival institution, on London’s South Bank, at Wales’ Green Man and many more besides Edinburgh.
In addition Rob has also appeared on any number of Radio and TV shows, including winning Celebrity Mastermind and a comedians’ special of the Weakest Link. A keen runner, Rob presents the podcast Running Commentary with fellow running comic Paul Tonkinson and recently ran all over Britain for BBC 6 Music.
