Short but worth the time

I would wish there were more of this. I'm unsure if there is a series 2 or the show flopped but I find myself wanting to hear more of Rhods witty humour.

Not as expected

I may not have been paying full enough attention to the description when buying this. I didn't realise that it would be peppered with music and other nonsense that I'm uninterested in; I merely wanted comedy.
If you want Rhod Gilbert doing comedy, don't get this.

self indulgent

picking out old material and replaying as new. disappointing from one of my favourite stand ups.

Stick to the standup

What would have made Rhod Gilbert's Bulging Barrel of Laughs: Complete Series 1 better?

It could, should have been funnier. The format of the show which is the tired old chat show with music is dull. The analogies in the introduction to each episode are pretty sad too.

Has Rhod Gilbert's Bulging Barrel of Laughs: Complete Series 1 put you off other books in this genre?

Yes, I would be unlikely to get more chat shows, although love his stand-up

What didn’t you like about Rhod Gilbert’s performance?

See above

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Rhod Gilbert's Bulging Barrel of Laughs: Complete Series 1?

The music, the intro.

Any additional comments?

Can't believe Greg Davies isn't funnier in this as love his other stuff too.
