Rhod Gilbert returns to stand-up comedy

OHMYGOSSIP — Rhod Gilbert has returned to stand-up comedy after battling head and neck cancer.
The 54-year-old comedy star recently performed at Swansea Arena for the first time in a year, and Rhod subsequently admitted that he was delighted about his return to the stand-up scene.
Rhod – who announced last year that he was being treated for stage four cancer – said in a Facebook video: “It is wonderful being back doing stand-up again for the first time in a year.
“Lovely to be here, lovely to be back in Swansea, lovely to be alive and lovely to be back on tour.”
Rhod previously admitted that he felt “p***** off” when he was diagnosed with head and neck cancer.
The TV star also revealed that he was left struggling to “speak or breathe” during the early days of his battle with the disease.
In a pre-recorded segment for the National Comedy Awards, which were held in aid of Stand Up 2 Cancer, he said: “I couldn’t speak or breathe and I was postponing and cancelling tour shows, I had terrible spasms in my face and a lot of tightness in my muscles.
“Couldn’t get to the bottom of it, turns out after a biopsy of this lump in my neck that I have something called head and neck cancer, cancer of the head, sounded pretty serious.”
Rhod joked that he assumed he would have “life-long immunity” from cancer after spending ten years as a patron of Velindre Cancer Centre.
He said: “I’ve led five fundraising treks all over the world, I do stand-up comedy nights to raise money, I hosted quizzes … it’s been a big part of my life for the last ten years, so imagine my surprise when I was diagnosed with cancer.
“Which p***** me off no end, because I thought I’d have life-long immunity! Apparently not.
“Apparently you’re just as likely to get cancer even if you spend your time fundraising for a cancer hospital. Anyway, I did get it, and it turns out it can come for anybody.”
