Award winning comedian Rob Brydon and his eight‐piece band will make an appearance in the Granite City next year.
The show, called Rob Brydon ‐ Songs and Stories, will be stopping off at Aberdeen’s Music Hall on April 30 2020.
It’s the first time that he has created a show that includes songs and music as well as his acclaimed wit and comedy.
With songs from Sondheim to Rodgers and Hammerstein, from Paul Simon to Tom Waits and almost everything in between, audiences can expect Mr Brydon’s usual warmth and humour as well as some of his famed gallery of voices.
He said of his new show: “It will take some people by surprise. There are so many media outlets nowadays that some people might only know me from Gavin and Stacey or Would I Lie To You?.
“Those people often say to me, ‘I didn’t know you could sing’, and yet I have sung a lot. I hope this show is a very pleasant surprise for audiences.”
Rob 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.
