Rob Brydon heads to Eastbourne’s Congress Theatre on September 10 to kick-off his latest tour with a brand-new show which fuses his well-known comedy persona with his, perhaps lesser-known, stunning vocal ability.

As a singer, Rob’s reached Number One with the Comic Relief song Islands in the Stream, has performed with Bryn Terfel CBE on his best-selling album and even popped up to sing the Welsh National Anthem with Coldplay at one of their gigs at Principality Stadium!

In this new show, award winning comedian Rob Brydon and his eight-piece band start at Eastbourne with Rob Brydon – A Night Of Songs & Laughter, which is the first time Brydon has created a show that includes songs and music as well as his acclaimed wit and comedy.

With songs from Tom Waits to Tom Jones, and Guys and Dolls to Elvis (and almost everything in between), A Night of Songs & Laughter tells Rob’s personal musical journey from South Wales to the West End and beyond. Audiences can expect Rob’s usual warmth and humour as he regales them with hilarious tales from his distant and recent past.

Rob commented: “I’m so excited to get back on stage with this show. Touring with this incredible band of musicians is such a delight. I’m looking forward to getting around the country and bring some much needed music and laughter.”

Rob Brydon’s varied career began with the TV comedy shows Marion and Geoff and Human Remains in 2000, for which he won British Comedy Awards.  Since then his comedy credits have included A Small Summer Party, The Keith Barret Show, Directors Commentary, Supernova, Cruise Of The Gods, Black Books, I’m Alan Partridge, Little Britain, Live At The Apollo, Rob Brydon’s Annually Retentive, QI, The Big Fat Quiz Of The Year, Have I Got News For You, Gavin and Stacey, Rob Brydon’s Identity Crisis, Would I Lie To You and The Trip with Steve Coogan.

He has also appeared in dramas such asOliver Twist, Heroes and Villains: Napoleon, The Way We Live Now, Murder In Mind, Kenneth Tynan: In Praise of Hardcore, Marple and the films, Disney’s live action Cinderella, 24 Hour Party People, MirrorMask, A Cock and Bull Story and the film Swimming with Men.

In 2009 alongside Ruth Jones, Robin Gibb and Sir Tom Jones, Rob reached number one in the UK charts with Islands in The Stream, in aid of Comic Relief. He also embarked on an 87 date tour of the UK with his stand up show, Rob Brydon Live which included a three week run in London’s West End.
