Rob Brydon is a Welsh comedian, actor, and radio presenter. Currently, he hosts panel shows Rob Brydon’s Annually Retentive (a parody show that chronicles the making of a panel show… how very meta) and Would I Lie to You? (taking over for Angus Deayton last year). He is also known for his acting work in British romantic comedy show Gavin & Stacey (he played Uncle Bryn), and for playing Keith Barret in mockumetary shows Marion and Geoff and The Keith Barret Show.
I am delighted whenever Rob pops up on panel shows. His wacky sense of humour makes him one of my favourite Welsh, nay British, comedians (are there any bad Welsh comedians?).
Before breaking into comedic writing, Rob did voice-work for many ads, as well as for the Discworld computer games. He still occasionally brings out his voice-work abilities:
In addition to doing a large amount of acting work and appearing on numerous panel shows, Rob is a stand-up comedian. Last year, he hosted an episode of the prestigious Live at the Apollo, which showcases the cream of the British comedy crop (and the occasional foreigner).
Quite the story, Rob.
