The man described as a “latter-day Stan Laurel” by TimeOut, Rob Rouse comes to play at Tony Basnett’s Trapdoor Comedy this Wednesday for a midweek bonus. As seen on Upstart Crow, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Celebrity Juice and more, Rob Rouse is one of the best stand-ups in the country and is always an absolute treat, especially when he has the space to messaround like at Basnett’s welcoming gig.
