He puts his rave reviews down to his act which is a mixture of traditional comedy, alternative and the downright zany – a style that appeals right across the board.

“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.”

His exceptional delivery and material have attracted the praise of some of the business’ most respected names and critics. Tipped for great things, Rod prides himself on the original and topical content of his performances.  Rod’s professionalism goes before him – literally. He always tries to be a step ahead by planning each individual performance to suit the occasion, therefore bringing a unique personal touch to his speeches.

Rod has written and performed in his own Radio Wales Comedy series, “Doing It For A Laugh” – 3Series.  He has also written and presented the ten-part series, “A Bit Off The Fringe” for BBC2 Wales, and has appeared as the subject of the BBC documentary, “Am I Talking To You”, which followed Rod on his journey to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.  He wrote and performed his own one man show for a 25-night run at The Pleasance at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, for which he earned rave reviews.
