Rob Deering is an award winning comedian who combines sharp wit, physical comedy, and virtuoso musicianship.
Rob Deering is an award-winning guitar-playing comedian. Over the years Rob 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. Combining jokes, a cheeky grim and some impressive guitar and singing skills, Rob wins over audiences of any background. Using a battery of effects pedals, Rob creates whole songs live on stage to help him look at how ludicrous rock music can be, the worst song lyrics ever written, and highlight wildly inappropriate songs to accompany certain moments in life. He also points out how many performers sing with bread in their mouths and the similarity of songs previously consider worlds apart - such as Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit and Abba's Dancing Queen.
