Coming to Darlington Comedy Festival at Old English Gentleman in Darlington on July 1st 2019:
Darlington Comedy Festival presents Rob Deering & Beat This
Rob Deering (Work in Progress)
Rob Deering is back with brand new stuff for 2019 – although you can be sure it will utilise his unique toolkit; stand-up comedy with music, using a guitar, a loop pedal and his voice to create impressive rock and pop soundscapes – and do jokes, of course.
Plus his knowledge of popular music and culture is second to none, and his face, smiley and approachable at first, turns out to be rubbery and preposterous.
Expect big beats, belly laughs and at least one earworm.
“highly impressive one-man soundscape powered mainly by energy and excellent guitar skills” – The Scotsman
Rob Deering’s Beat This
The live music-based comedy pop quiz, featuring four top UK stand-ups.
A cult festival favourite – from the Big Chill, Machfest, The Green Man, and five years on the Edinburgh Fringe – Rob Deering’s Beat This is never the same twice, an alchemical mix of Deering’s superb guitar skills, an up-for-it and ever-involved audience and an impressive roster of fabulous – and equally up-for-it – contestants.
“Employing live music mash-ups, megamixes (not enough of them nowadays) and music trivia, the nimble-fingered Deering pits comedians and the audience against each other” – Comedy Central
