Rob Beckett

Rob started performing stand-up in 2009 and quickly enjoyed success in all of the new comedian competitions winning 4 competitions in his first year.

Consistently impressive performances in these competitions, culminated in Rob finishing as a runner up in So You Think You’re Funny and winning the Amused Moose Laugh Off which earned him an invite to perform at Comedy festivals in Australia.

At this festival in Adelaide Rob was nominated for the best newcomer award. He made his debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2012 with his solo show Rob Beckett’s Summer Holiday.
