Reviews

All eight episodes from the first two series of the BBC show in which comedian Rhod Gilbert takes on a variety of tough jobs. Whether carting away people's rubbish, mucking out a barn full of cows or taking part in a British Army training exercise, the Welsh comic quickly discovers whether the jobs he has chosen to sample are indeed tougher than being a stand up for a living. The episodes are: 'Binman', 'Mum', 'Hairdresser', 'Soldier', 'Farmer', 'Butler', 'Tattooist' and 'Firefighter'.

Im quite a big fan of Rhod,love his stand up,especially when he goes off on one of his mad rants about something.Infact its something I get accused of doing every so often,though Im nowhere near as funny.Thrown into numerous work place environments,its either sink or swim as he has to cope with various tasks,from bin man to parent,farmer to tattoo artist,he starts from scratch and has to learn fast.As you would expect there are plenty of laughs along the way,but what I really like was that he laughed with people,never at them.It would have been so easy for him to rip somebody to pieces,for the sake of a cheap laugh,but he never does.He comes over as a genuinely nice guy,who hasnt lost touch with the ordinary man on the street.No matter how far I try and stretch my imagination,I cant see the likes of Michael McIntyre or Jack Whitehall ever doing a series like this,they couldnt make it work.

Rhods fans are going to love this DVD,which gives you both series,four 30 minute episodes on each disc.But even if youve never seen him doing stand up,there is a lot to like about it.Obviously some episodes are better than others,I loved the one where he was let loose in a hairdressing salon,and where he had to learn how to tattoo someone,but none of them really backfire.A really funny guy,and two great series that will keep you happily entertained.

I have to confess; I have a massive crush on Rhod so I maybe biased towards him! However my husband, nan and best friend all find his as hilarious too! I didn't catch work experience when it was on tv so was so excited about it coming out on DVD, and it didn't disappoint!
Without revealing too much; Rhod is funniest as a Mum and a fire fighter!
Well worth a watch...now I gotta wait for the flaming battenburg tattoo dvd

Being great fans of Rhod Gilbert, we thoroughly enjoyed viewing this video and watching his antics whilst performing work experience. Thoroughly recommended. These clips have not been shown on TV (at least not to my knowledge).

It's weird, but when I try to watch Rhod do stand-up, I don't care much for his act. I find him complaining none stop a bit too much. And yet, his moaning at having to do real work fits well here. I really enjoyed the series and was left feeling much warmer towards old Rhod. The only disappointment is that there are only 4 episodes per series. Make 8, you lazy sod!

So funny and engaging. However there are some job such as the army or fire fighters where it also makes you realise how tough the jobs are, and are quite humbling. rhod Gilbert has a great approach and only wish the other series were also available on DVD too

Good family fun (despite the odd swear word)!! Entertaining, informative- Rhod Gilbert at his finest- hilarious look at a range of occupations that hopefully he would never take up seriously!
