Rob Brydon heads to Eastbourne’s Congress Theatre on 10 September 2021 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 come to 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.”
