Welsh comedian Rhod Gilbert is performing in Abergavenny next week.

The comedian, who hasn't toured since 2012, will put on a 'Work in Progress 'gig at the Borough Theatre in Cross Street, Abergavenny, on Thursday, May 24.

Tickets for the show are priced at £15 with Borough Theatre patrons getting priority booking.

Mr Gilbert said: “After almost six years away from live stand-up, I’m itching to get back on stage.  The world has gone totally mad since I last toured in 2012, and my head is all over the shop. 

"It’s time to get back out there and sort it all out once and for all.  I haven’t gigged in so long, I’ll be rustier than a Welsh barbeque.  Why not come along and see me scrabbling around on stage, trying to find my notes.”

Councillor Bob Greenland, Monmouthshire’s cabinet member for cultural services commented: “We’re delighted to welcome Rhod to the Borough Theatre.  A lot has happened since Rhod last performed live gigs and his profile has risen such that he is now a household name. 

"It’s good to host top artistes at the Borough and we’re looking to bring more performers of this calibre to Abergavenny.”
