The highly acclaimed Rhod Gilbert returns to Edinburgh with an act that deserves the packed-out venues that he will be playing to for every night this month. Gilbert's ferocity has, in previous years, been levelled at mince pies and duvets, and this year he channels his anger into even more material objects - 'delay start' buttons on washing machines, for example, feel his fury and ire. It is the ability to make the audience feel slightly sorry for odd Rhod that is the show's greatest attribute. His continual 'need for counselling' is highly believable, as is the short temper that is no more so epitomised than on a video wall at the end of the performance, showing his fuse snapping at listeners to BBC Radio Wales who have attempted to send in cats replicating the said Rodney-playing comedian.Before that epic finale, the show is littered with sarcasm, quick wit and anger as Rhod recounts his previous year with typical scorn. The show is punchy and engaging, biaficating the audience's attention with humour-filled events that are continually threaded together with great gusto. The passion that Gilbert puts into this performance is worth the admission price alone, and this - guaranteed - will be replicated by the audience's cheers come the end of the show.
