Rhod Gilbert at the Watford Colosseum *****
Despite being a fiery Welshman, I can honestly say I've never found myself worked up about advertising boards in service station toilets. Nor have I whipped myself into a frenzy about the names of shower gels or the fact supermarkets sell jacket potatoes in packs of two.
The same cannot be said of my fellow countryman and comedian Rhod Gilbert, who is currently touring the UK regaling audiences about such seemingly harmless aspects of everyday life.
By his own admission Gilbert has anger management issues, and indeed this latest tour - The Man with the Flaming Battenburg Tattoo - which he brought to the Watford Colosseum last night, is all about providing us with an hilarious insight into the diary he has written to help him cope with life's little irritants.
During the near three-hour set, Gilbert took us on a journey through a recent period of his life, culminating in a make-or-break trip to New York with his girlfriend. Along the way he told us how electricians, sandwiches and a tattoo he acquired while making a TV show caused friction between himself and his partner.
It's all seemingly mundane stuff which Gilbert somehow manages to make exhilaratingly funny.
The show is a story with a definite beginning, middle and end but despite this Gilbert flies off on amusing tangents and it's often hard to work out if he's sticking to the script. Likewise, every comedian has to deal with hecklers but his talent for integrating members of the audience into the tale he is telling at the time could almost make you believe they were planted into the packed auditorium, although of course they are not.
I won't tell you the outcome of the New York trip but you would be well advised to take in one of Gilbert's shows and find out for yourself.
