Critics are raving about Rod Woodward, from Cardiff, who is reckoned to be Britain’s brightest hope in the comedy world since he started out performing at the tender age of 18.
He puts his rave reviews down to his act which is a mixture of traditional comedy, alternative, and the down right zany – a style that appeals right across the board.
He said “The comics that are making the big waves in Britain at the moment are the ones who are bridging the gap between alternative and traditional comedy.
“I tend not tell too many jokes; it is mainly observations – whimsical stuff with a touch of the surreal. I have great respect for comedians like Billy Connolly, Frank Skinner, and Ben Elton and I am carrying on that tradition.”
Rod Woodward is one of the fastest rising, most exciting comics in Great Britain.
