Rod Woodward 'The Journey Starts Here' in Bury St Edmunds...
Rod Woodward may not be a household name just yet, but that is all sure to change following his hilarious routine on the Royal Variety Performance in December. Rod has embarked on his eagerly awaited nationwide debut tour The Journey Starts Here and comes to The Apex on Tuesday 9 June.
Half Welsh, half Italian, Rod is the son of a respected Welsh sportswriter and had planned to follow his dad into the media, but found a new outlet for his writing when he was offered a job as an audience warm-up man at HTV Wales.
Now a multi-award winning comic, Rod Woodward has been tipped for stardom by such luminaries as Bob Monkhouse and Peter Kay, who declared him to be "A young Dave Allen'”. Further praise has come from Barry Cryer: “A brilliant young comic with great style and repose”, and Bryn Williams, Toastmaster to the Queen, who declared Rod to be one of the best speakers he had ever heard.
Rod has supported Russell Brand and taken part in a national tour with Paddy McGuinness (from Peter Kay's Phoenix Nights and Max & Paddy's Road To Nowhere). He won both the 'Best Newcomer to Variety' award and The Comedy Club’s BBC series 'Funny Business'. Rod also scooped Encore Magazine's 'Entertainer of the Year' award for his "fresh and outstanding material, absurdly plausible and outrageously provocative".
The show at The Apex is on Tuesday 9 June at 8pm. Tickets are £17.50, call the Box Office on 01284 758000, or visit www.theapex.co.uk for more information, or to book your tickets.
