Product Description

Following two sell-out UK tours, multi-award winning Welsh wonder Rhod Gilbert presents his eagerly awaited debut stand-up DVD. One of the UK’s hottest comedians, Rhod takes observational humour to a whole new level with his fantastical ranting on life’s minor irritations.

Regular on Live At The Apollo and Mock The Week and star of the 2008 Royal Variety Performance, here, Rhod tells the hilarious and slightly ridiculous story of how a chance encounter with a mince pie at a motorway service station finally sent him over the edge.

Special Features:
• Back to Llanbobl
• Luggage
• Outtakes

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 11 Mar 2010
Format:DVD
I got this DVD for Xmas as a prelude to seeing Rhod on tour this year. That is not until November and I really cannot wait - The Award Winning Mince Pie is a fabulous anecdotal tale that allows Rhod to demonstrate an impassioned delivery about the absurdity of everyday life through a frustrated and angst ridden lens. The backdrop is a simple motorway journey that allows Rhod to spout off about everything from Robin Hood Airport, where the journey begins to the principal Service Station encounter where you can rate the toilet experience and buy incredible things like candles with the power of a million candles and of course mince pies on offer that have won an award!

5.0 out of 5 stars the cure to my rainy day blues 19 Nov 2009
By Charl H
Format:DVD
I bought this DVD on the day it was released because after watching Rhod Gilbert on the Royal Variety 2008 I was hungry for more of his sheer genius comedy! I was nor dissapointed. I put it on just because I was cooped up in the house on a rainy Tuesday afternoon, essay writing done and with a cup of coffee in hand I relished the next hour and a half. By the end I was decidedly in love with Rhod Gilbert and would quite happily share my million tog devet with him...so long as he brings his torch! The ending of the DVD, which I don't want to give away, is THE BEST comedy ending ever. Rhod is definately the best comedian of the nougties

5.0 out of 5 stars On top of his game 15 Nov 2009
Format:DVD
Rhod Gilbert has matured in the last couple of years to become one of the most uniquely funny comedians on the stand-up circuit.

This DVD is the result and shows him at the very top of his game. He's totally at ease on the stage and with his audience. During the show, he switches from observational rants to flights of pure fantasy with a relaxed ease that comes from a very well crafted basic story, highlighted by his ramblings into the realms of the ridiculous.

The material is all fresh, and the residents of his home town of Llanbobl must be so proud that by the end of the show, he has quite literally put the town on the map.

If you liked Rhod Gilbert before - you'll love him even more after seeing this.

(and don't worry ... the luggage story IS on the extras)

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy the DVD!! 20 Jun 2009
Format:DVD
I was in the audience of the DVD recording and it was awesome, he really is on top form at the moment, definately worth getting. He even filmed the extras there and then with some classics.
He is a naturally funny Llanbobblian :)

5.0 out of 5 stars rhod gilbert and the award winning mince pie 19 Jun 2010
Format:DVD
Rhod gilbert is a up and coming welsh comedian and this is his first stand up DVD release. filmed in 2009 at the bloomsbury theater , rhod and his award winning mince pie tell the story of his breakdown at knutsworth services and how he came to be in that state. although that sounds quite depressing for a stand up show , his anger, passion and his welsh accent make it very enjoyable.

===Rhod===
As i said he is a welsh comedian who has appeared on the royal variety show,mock the week,live at the appolo and comedy roadshow. Rhod has a act which is fast paced and you really do need to pay attention to keep up with the story links and jokes, there are sections when he does talk very fast in the heat of the moment and this is hilarious.

===Jokes===
Rhods stand up is quite strange, i feel he's one of those comedians you need to be in the mood to watch otherwise it doesnt have a true effect. The jokes arent laugh out loud funny (to me anyway) but they make you chuckle as he goes along aggreing with all his observations he makes. His jokes are realistic and based on his observations around the time leading up to knutsworth services, notable joke sections are the taliban phoning his mum, tog rating system , light of a million candles and the feedback at service stations. Noticing the 15 rating i should mention his jokes arent dirty, the rating is down to swears , this is down to the welsh accent and the act he puts up.

===DVD===
The dvd features a spinning waiters plate with a mince pie on top, the 4 options turn around this every few seconds so you have to be quick. The 4 sections are play,scenes,extras and support(subtitles and such).

5.0 out of 5 stars My new favourite comedian 30 April 2010
By P. Hill
Format:DVD
I haven't laughed so much in ages! It was so much better than I was expecting and I wanted to watch it again immediately. I'd only seen Rhod on his work experience programme and in short slots on Live at the Apollo and Mock the Week etc., but now I can't wait to see him live!
