Hailing from South East London, Rob Beckett burst onto the comedy circuit in 2009.
Within his first year Rob won four major newcomer comedy competitions – Amused Moose Laugh Off, Outside the Box New Act of the Year, Leicester Square Theatre New Act of the Year and the Reading Comedy Festival New Act of the Year.
Rob Beckett made his Edinburgh Fringe Festival debut in 2012 with his solo show Rob Beckett’s Summer Holiday.
After quickly establishing himself on the comedy and festival circuit, Rob’s cockney cheeky chappy persona saw him winning fans starring on prime-time shows such as:
- BBC1’s Live At The Apollo
- Would I Lie To You
- Channel 4’s 8 Out Of 10 Cats
- BBC2’s Mock The Week
- ITV2’s Celebrity Juice
Rob has also been the resident comedian on ITV2’s ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Now!‘
Beckett’s debut tour, which finished in spring 2014, saw him playing to sell out venues all over the UK with dates being added due to the phenomenal demand.
Rob is also a host of Dave’s podcast, The Magic Sponge, alongside Jimmy Bullard and Ian Smith, as well as hosting Absolute Radio’s hit show, Rock n Roll Football.
Rob’s 2017 national tour Mouth of the South, kicked off in February and features a brand-new show of funnies, taking on the big issues like Kit Kats and flatbread!
