Welsh stand-up comic Rhod Gilbert performs live at the Bloomsbury Theatre in London, taking observational humour to a whole new level with his fantastical ranting and over-analysis of life's annoyances that constantly conspire to bring him down.

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)

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!

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

I absolutely loved this DVD. I bought it as a Christmas present for my father, and having finally got round to watching it a couple of nights ago, was definitely not disappointed. I was laughing out loud for pretty much the entire performance, and the angry Welsh accent just adds to the humour. Fantastic.

If like me you had only really seen Rhod Gilbert on Live at the apollo great to see his full set as the last 10 minutes when he wraps up with a number of call backs to earlier jokes is worth the price of the DVD
His best bits are here the duvet tog system and his famous torch with the power of a million candles.

There's even a DVD extra featuring his hilarious luggage sketch which if you've never seen watch on YOU Tube and would be a good barometer iff you would like this DVD

He's at his best when getting angry with something, this is very funny without having too much swearing or sexual content

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 :)

Unfortunatley I have failed to see Rhod live on his tour so I have been waiting for this dvd for a while and my god was it worth the wait.

Rhod Gilbert seriously is in a league of his own here. The structure, tempo (which changes dramatically in stages) and delivery is absolutley spot on with every word. Even the extras had me in stitches!

I will never be able to visit a motorway service station ever again without laughing which could become a problem seen as Im usually busting for the toilet when I do go to them :)

Buy it and enjoy it!
