2016 after-dinner entertainment - Rob Beckett - stand-up comedian & actor
Last year's FN50 comedian, Rob Beckett, burst onto the comedy circuit only a few years ago winning four comedy competitions in his first year of stand-up. Consistently impressive performances culminated in Rob finishing as a runner up in So You Think You’re Funny and winning the Amused Moose Laugh Off. He performed at Comedy festivals in Australia and was nominated for the Best Newcomer award in Adelaide.
He made his debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2012 with his solo show Rob Beckett’s Summer Holiday. After quickly establishing himself on the circuit Rob’s cheeky chappy persona saw him starring on Live At The Apollo (BBC1) Would I Lie To You (BBC1) 8 Out of 10 Cats (C4) Mock the Week (BBC2) Celebrity Juice (ITV2 as well as his role as resident comedian in the jungle on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Now!
Outside the realms of stand-up Rob is also an actor having recently starred in Channel 4′s Fresh Meat. On tour he’s supported Russell Kane and Stephen K Amos and his 2016 tour is set to sell out at venues all over the UK with dates being added due to the phenomenal demand.
