Rhodri Rhys has moved swiftly since joining the comedy circuit and can now be seen regularly as an act and compére in London, across the UK and internationally.
Before becoming a comedian Rhod qualified as a Chartered Surveyor and became a property entrepreneur in Eastern Europe. From 1990 to 2002 he lived in Prague enjoying business success and the unique hedonistic social life of that interesting era!
His skill in performing developed during these years when he lectured on property, hosted and compéred at regular business, diplomatic and charity events and went on to perform alongside established visiting British comedians. Encouraged by these performers, and with a hat full of plundered east European gold, he moved back to London to pursue a comedy career.
Rhodri has been the subject of a number of TV and radio programmes in Welsh, Czech and English (S4C, TV Nova, BBC Wales). He has done comedy gigs in Warsaw, Moscow, New York, Budapest, Prague and Bahrain.
Rhodri’s act combines sharp wit and observation with a natural geniality. His material is broad and colourful, drawing on his own experiences in his unusual path to a comedy career, while deftly seaming in religion, business, sport and history too.
