Award winning comedian Rob Brydon and his eight-piece band will head to Auckland Wellington and Christchruch with his new show, Rob Brydon – A Night Of Songs & Laughter. The new show follows on from the huge success of his 2019 sold out tour of Australia and marks the first time the much-loved entertainer has created a show that includes songs and music alongside his acclaimed wit and comedy.
With songs from Tom Waits to Tom Jones, and Guys and Dolls to Elvis (and almost everything in between), audiences can expect Rob’s usual warmth and humour as well as some of his famed gallery of voices.
Rob said: “I'm so excited to be heading back to New Zealand and getting back on stage with this new show. Touring with this incredible band of musicians is such a delight. I'm looking forward to getting around your fine country next year and bring some much needed music and laughter.”
