Rhod Gilbert to bring new show to Poole

AWARD-winning comedian Rhod Gilbert is back – and he is heading to Poole next year.

The star will bring his new show – Rhod Gilbert & the Giant Grapefruit – to the Lighthouse theatre on October 4, 2024.

His return to the stage comes after he was diagnosed with cancer in 2022, but the comic says he’s looking forward to getting out on the road once again.

“After the year I’ve had it’s wonderful to be alive and going back on the road,” he said.

“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 (stuff).”
