Rob Rouse

Comic Storyteller


Rob Rouse

Rob is one of our best comic storytellers, who works long form narratives into hard-hitting, uncompromising hilarious tales, filled with warmth, vulnerability and a real sense of compassion for our collective human frailties.

Rob takes his trademark comedic storytelling to a career high in this new show, exploring issues of embarrassment, obsession, control, compromise and ultimately, submission. This is an irresistibly hilarious and candid story of the highs and lows of life in a small village, which has taught him to relinquish all attempts to control his life and forced him to face down literally one of the most awkward situations you’re ever likely to hear about.

Also appearing as Shakespeare’s manservant ‘Bottom’ in BBC 2’s in Upstart Crow (May 2016)

As seen on 8 out of 10 cats, Dave’s One Night Stand, Spoons, John Bishops Only Joking

‘He’s a man with genuinely funny bones'


“Rob Rouse is a born clown. A Latter-day Stan Laurel”
