Rob Deering: Earworm (Work In Progress)
  • Great Yorkshire Fringe

Rob Deering is back with his most tenacious tunes yet. Top stand-up he may be, but Rob's live comedy modus operandi is unique; styling himself as a 21st century one-man band, he layers and loops an impressive soundscape around his satirical-yet-silly set, his let's-face-it ridiculous face belying his razor-sharp edge. One of the most in-demand headliners on the UK comedy circuit and around the world, Rob has also toured solo shows nationally and appeared at countless festivals. This, however, is a unique chance to experience the full, live Deering, on stage, alone but for his backing band which, it should be pointed out, is also him - not that you'd know it to hear it, as he conjures guitars, bass, beats and backing vocals from nothing in this new album of huge tunes. Massive melodies, big beats and more hooks than a keen fisherman these songs may have, but with Rob Deering it's always comedy first, each hook baited with an Earworm - there it is - specially created to catch the preposterousness of modern life.
