Rob Rouse

Rob Rouse

One of comedy’s most lively, loveable and dynamic performers, Rob won Channel 4’s Prestigious So You Think You’re Funny competition at the Edinburgh Festival in way back in 1998. He’s one of our best comic storytellers, has performed all over the world and works long form narratives into hard-hitting, uncompromising hilarious tales filled with warmth and a sense of compassion for our collective human frailties.
The Ex-Geography teacher has been described critically as “A born clown”, those who really know him may lovingly use the word ‘idiot’.
TV credits include Ben Elton’s hit BBC2 Shakespeare sitcom ‘Upstart Crow’ playing ‘Bottom’ which was recently voted ‘Best new sitcom’ on the British Comedy Guide. Rob is currently recording series two, playing William Shakespeare’s manservant, alongside David Mitchell, Harry Enfield, Mark Heap, Paula Wilcox, Gemma Whelan, Liza Tarbuck and Spencer Jones.
