Rob Beckett - Wallop!

The cheeky chappy will be bringing his Wallop! show to New Zealand. It’s been a busy few years for the Mouth of the South – and he’s coming to see you to fill you in and make you laugh.  WALLOP!

“There are hints that his eyes are set firmly on arenas that are as big as that mouth of his” - Metro London  
During the crisis, Rob has kept himself busy with his hugely popular podcast Parenting Hell, co-presented with Josh Widdicombe, which has had over 25 million downloads.  The show sees the pair interviewing fellow parents on their successes (or most likely failures) at parenting.  Guests have included Katherine Ryan, Jonathan RossKerry Godliman and many more.  The podcast has been a comedy lifeline for many in these challenging times, and as a result it has been a regular fixture at the top of the iTunes podcast chart. He also starred in the third series of the BAFTA-nominated Rob And Romesh Vs, alongside best mate, Romesh Ranganathan, as well as ITV’s Paul Sinha’s TV Showdown.
 
And as if his performance talent isn’t enough, Rob has now penned a book – A Class Act – which is his autobiographical account of being working-class in the middle-class world of television and comedy.  At work he’s the Cockney geezer, but to his mates down the pub in south-east London, he’s the theatrical one – a media luvvy.  Even his wife and kids are posher than him!  The book, which is a funny, candid and often moving account of what it feels like to be an outsider, is out now.
  “Lights up the stage with his magnetic personality (not to mention the dazzle from his teeth)” - Mail On Sunday  
Rob Beckett burst onto the comedy circuit 10 years ago and hasn’t looked back since.  Besides being known as the unmistakable voice of Celebs Go Dating, he’s also been a team captain on 8 Out of 10 Cats.  In 2019 Rob co-hosted The Royal Variety Performance with Romesh Ranganathan, the first time two fellow comedians had hosted the event together in over 30 years.
 
His cheeky persona has also seen him host Children in Need and Comic Relief.  Other TV shows include multiple appearances on BBC One’s Live At The ApolloWould I Lie To You?The Graham Norton ShowAll Round Mrs Brown’sMichael McIntyre’s Big Show, Sky One’s A League of Their OwnChannel 4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats and Cats Does Countdown, BBC Two’s Mock The Week, ITV’s Play to The WhistleThe Jonathan Ross Show, ITV Two’s Celebrity Juice, and Dave’s Jon Richardson: Ultimate WorrierTaskmasterand Hypothetical.
