Rob Deering exploded on to the comedy scene in 2000, reaching the Daily Telegraph Open Mic Award semi-finals, the finals of the BBC New Comedy Award and the final of the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year Competition, as well as winning the prestigious Amused Moose New Talent Award.
With his easy charm, cheesy singing voice, razor-sharp wit and clownish physicality Rob has quickly established himself as a firm favorite on the London circuit as well as with our Crack Comedy Clubs and has played at all the major comedy venues nationwide. He slayed audiences as a headliner on The Comedy Network and was commissioned by channel 4 to write and host the comedy series Lesser-Spotted Britain.
Rob’s previous Edinburgh Festival shows have included: Superkings (2003), The Facts (2002) and The Comedy Zone (2001). He has also starred in 99 Things To Do Before You Die (Five), appeared on RI:SE (C4), performed in 4 at the Store (BBC Radio 4) and written and presented Lesser-Spotted Britain (C4).
