Rhod Gilbert shocked by return to comedy after cancer diagnosis


Rhod Gilbert ‘pinching himself’ as he shares cancer update

Rhod Gilbert says he still “pinches himself” as he is back on stage performing stand-up comedy two years after he was diagnosed with cancer.

The 55-year-old was diagnosed with head and neck cancer in July 2022 after he noticed symptoms during a fundraising trek.

After undergoing treatment, the comedian was given the all-clear in October last year.

Giving an update on his health when he appeared on BBC’s The One Show on Monday (29 April), Gilbert said: “I'm here, I'm good and every night, I'm on stage pinching myself that I'm doing this. That I'm on stage performing just now two years after being diagnosed.”
