Over the years award-winning guitar-playing comedian Rob Deering has cemented his reputation as one of the country‟s finest stand ups, taking six solo shows to the Edinburgh Festival, headlining all the major comedy clubs throughout Britain and taking part in Paramount Comedy’s Edinburgh and Beyond live show as well as his own Charmageddon and The Rob Deering Experience national tours.
In 2011, Rob returned to the Edinburgh festival with his show The Rob Deering Experience earning him a host of rave reviews alongside the return of his monthly comedy music panel game Beat This.

Rob has provided daily coverage for ITV‟s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! and was the winner of the Weakest Link Comedians Special on BBC1. However he may still be best known for drinking his own wee on 99 Things To Do Before You Die (Five).

“As sharp and versatile as a Swiss Army knife, Rob Deering is one of the best performers currently on the circuit."
“Uses music to brilliantly accessorise his swipes at the innate gormlessness of contemporary culture.”
