Bio

Rob Mulholland

One of the fastest rising new comedians on the circuit, Rob Mulholland fell into comedy after finding a flyer looking for acts to appear at Harrogate Comedy Festival on the ground outside his front door. In the years since, he has clocked up a huge amount of gigs all over the country ranging from tiny pubs to massive theatres (even performing to 2,000 bikers at an outdoor festival!), and can now be seen most weekends in some of the biggest comedy clubs in the country.

Just as at home as an act or compere, Rob mixes cheeky audience banter with his intricately woven, gag-packed stories; adding a touch of the absurd to his askance glance at everyday life. Rob is 17 feet tall, made of steel and can jump over a mini cooper from a standing start.

Rob is the current Hilarity Bites New Act of the Year, and after finishing runner-up in this year’s Great Yorkshire Fringe New Act of the Year competition has awarded himself the title of “Yorkshire’s Funniest Non-Musical Comedian”. He was one half of the anarchic, late-night, yurt-based show #BlurredMinds at the 2015 Edinburgh festival and is premiering his first solo show ‘Weedophile’ at the Leicester Comedy Festival 2016.

Rob can also be heard in his role as sidekick to Tony Jameson on ‘Yet Another Comedy Podcast’, has performed on BBC Radio 4xtra, and has been featured in a documentary on Radio 4.
