I've seen Welsh stand up comedian on plenty of panel shows and short clips from his stand up act and found him funny. I ordered his three stand up DVDs from Amazon UK and there were under 4 pounds each. I found that buying the single discs was cheaper than buying the three pack of his live shows. It's over 22 pounds and the 3 seperate DVDs were less than half that.
Rhod Gilbert And The Award-Winning Mince Pie is Rhod's third stand up tour and his first DVD. The tour started in 2008 and the DVD came out in 2009. Rhod's show is about his December 2007 break down at a motorway service station over that Award-Winning mince pie. He just wanted to know about that award but it gets out of hand and the police come by for a laugh.
Rhod takes you through the events that lead up to that breakdown on the M6. Along the way he shouts at pokes fun the things like buying bedding, airlines, torches with the power of a million candlepower, his cock, usual sort of stuff, all woven into his breakdown story. There's a nice mixture of exaggeration and anger. Often Rhod's anger is aimed at the things that annoy him, often the things are trivial. I can sympathize, often it's the little things that set me off. I was glad to have watched the show. I'll watch it again someday.
