Welsh comedian Rhod Gilbert is booked to visit the Engine Shed.

The star of The Royal Variety Preformance, Live at the Apollo and Micheal McIntyre’s Comedy Show will arrive at the Engine Shed on November 3rd, with his tour ‘Rhod Gilbert and the Cat that Looked Like Nicholas Lyndhurst’, named so to annoy someone in Canterbury.

He was the winner of Time Out’s Comic of the Year, Breakthrough Act, and Best Show awards in 2008.

Mr Gilbert is also infamous for his scuffle with a shop assistant over ‘duvet tog-rating systems’ last year and going mad over a mince pie.

Victoria Simpson, events and marketing manager at the Engine Shed, said: ‘Rhod Gilbert is without doubt the hottest new property on the British comedy scene. Audiences and critics have been bowled over by his performances over the past year. We know that there’s a big appetite for comedy around Lincoln with the success of last year’s comedy festival and this is a great chance to see a performer destined for stardom.’

Tickets for Rhod Gilbert & the Cat that Looked Like Nicholas Lyndhurst are priced £15. They are available from the Engine Shed Box Office. Doors open 7.15 pm, for over 16s only.
