AWARD-winning comedian Rob Brydon and his eight-piece band are coming to Venue Cymru.

Brydon and his band will tour UK and Ireland as part of Rob Brydon – A Night of Songs & Laughter.

The production took critics and audiences by storm in 2022 and success was even enjoyed ‘down under’.

It returns to the UK on Sunday, February 18 2024 at Festival Theatre, Edinburgh. They will play at a variety of venues and will reach Venue Cymru on February 27 2024.

A Night of Songs & Laughter features Brydon's brilliant stand-up comedy plus songs ranging from Tom Waits to Tom Jones, and Guys and Dolls to Elvis (and almost everything in between), telling Brydon's personal musical journey from South Wales to the West End and beyond.

Audiences can expect Brydon's usual warmth and humour, along with his famed gallery of voices, as he regales them with hilarious tales from his distant and recent past.

Brydon said: "It turns out that touring with a band is the most fun you can have.

"I can't wait to get back out to some new towns and cities and to revisiting some of the old ones we loved playing on the first leg."

Brydon's varied career began with the TV comedy shows Marion and Geoff and Human Remains in 2000, for which he won British Comedy Awards. Since then, his comedy credits have included A Small Summer Party, The Keith Barret Show, Directors Commentary, Supernova, Cruise Of The Gods, Black Books, I’m Alan Partridge, Little Britain, Live At The Apollo, Rob Brydon’s Annually Retentive, QI, The Big Fat Quiz Of The Year, Have I Got News For You, Gavin and Stacey, Rob Brydon’s Identity Crisis, Would I Lie To You and The Trip with Steve Coogan.

He has also appeared in the dramas Oliver Twist, Heroes and Villains: Napoleon, The Way We Live Now, Murder In Mind, Kenneth Tynan: In Praise of Hardcore, Marple and the films 24 Hour Party People, MirrorMask, A Cock and Bull Story and the film Swimming with Men.


In 2009 alongside Ruth Jones, Robin Gibb and Sir Tom Jones, Brydon reached number one in the UK charts with the single Islands in The Stream, in aid of Comic Relief. He also embarked on an 87-date tour of the UK with his stand-up show, Rob Brydon Live which included a three-week run in London’s West End.

He also recently enjoyed a sold-out tour with Lee Mack and David Mitchell, before his own sell-out tour in 2020.

More recently, Brydon performed in the one-off concert, Old Friends, at Sondheim Theatre on May of 2022 which celebrated the life of the legendary composer Stephan Sondheim and raised funds for the Stephen Sondheim Foundation, generating new musical theatre talent for the future.
