Rhod Gilbert & The Giant Grapefruit


Get ready for a side-splitting comedy extravaganza as the acclaimed comedian Rhod Gilbert makes a triumphant return to the stage with his new live show, Rhod Gilbert & the Giant Grapefruit, scheduled to hit Lighthouse Poole on Friday, 4th October 2024.
Widely recognised as one of the standout talents of a generation, The Book of John, Rhod’s last tour, was a resounding success that ran from 2019 to 2023, with extra dates added due to unprecedented demand, Covid-related delays, and Rhod’s own battle with cancer. This deeply personal and candid show saw Rhod perform to over 200,000 people, earning rave reviews.

When life gives you lemons
Previously, Rhod was dealing with some pretty pungent life citrus, and an idiot called John. Little did he know that things were about to turn even more sour … But Rhod’s not bitter; he’s bouncing back and feeling remarkably zesty. Hilariously dark, passionate and way too personal, this is classic Gilbert, squeezing every last drop out of life’s latest curve balls… with a little help from an old adversary.
In anticipation of his return to the spotlight, this new live show sees Rhod back on stage doing what he does best. Candid, hilarious and uplifting, it’s a show about navigating the dark bits and turning life’s giant grapefruits into something approaching lemonade.
He says: ‘After the year I’ve had it’s wonderful to be alive and going back on the road. I can’t wait to get back on stage and I’m ready to get way too personal about life’s recent ups and downs. When life gives you lemons, you have to squeeze them ‘til the comedy juice flows, so prepare for some dark but funny s***.’
Tickets are on sale now, and will soon sell out, so don’t miss your chance to witness Rhod Gilbert’s comedic genius in action.
