From the endearing Uncle Bryn in Gavin & Stacey to his sparring with Steve Coogan in The Trip, Rob is one of the most popular entertainers on screen, whether acting or chairing competing celebrity lies.  He also tours with his Fabulous Band. 


Biography

Rob Brydon starred as Uncle Bryn in the hugely popular comedy Gavin & Stacey, joined in friendly rivalry with Steve Coogan on The Trip, and chairs Would I Lie To You. Originally a Radio Wales DJ, he first captured viewers’ imagination as Keith, the eternally optimistic chauffeur with his bittersweet, painfully comic tales in Marion and Geoff.

The one-man sitcom led to The Keith Barret Show, in which the host cheerfully delved into - and often ripped apart - his guests’ relationships. Since then he has some of the most popular comedy and panel shows on TV. His portrayal of the endlessly good-natured uncle in Gavin & Stacy made him a household name, and other credits include I'm Alan Partridge, Little Britain and Black Books. He also appears in many feature films including 24 Hour Party People, Holmes & Watson, The Huntsman and The Trip to...series. He's also been a regular on Have I Got News For You, Just A Minute and QI.

Onstage Rob is a natural entertainer and seasoned host, combining wit, song, and the occasional impression of Hollywood and Welsh legends.
