Rhod Gilbert Shares He’s Undergoing Treatment For Cancer

Comedian Rhod Gilbert has revealed he is undergoing cancer treatment.

The comic – known for shows like Mock The Week, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Taskmaster and Never Mind The Buzzcocks – said he was being treated at a Cardiff hospital he has supported for more than 10 years.

Rhod, 53, wrote on his official Facebook page: “As the proud patron of Velindre Cancer Centre, I’ve traveled the world hosting messy quizzes and star-studded comedy nights.

“I have met and befriended so many inspiring staff, patients and their families. It’s been a big part of my life for the last ten years.

“While I never thought I would be a patient here, I know better than anyone that I am in the best possible hands. The NHS care I receive is amazing.

“I wouldn’t wish that on anyone … but who knows, maybe I’ll come out the other end with a new stand-up show and a 40-minute tirade about orange squash.”

Rhod added: “Thank you all for your support over the last few weeks and months (and years). I will be gone for a while and not comment further, at least not right now while I focus on my recovery.”

He did not disclose what type of cancer he was being treated for.

Last week, the comedian postponed the final shows of his current stand-up tour.

In a Facebook post, he wrote: “As many of you know, I have been struggling with pain in my neck and throat for the past few months. I received treatment and continued touring where possible.

“I had sincerely hoped to be able to go ahead with all appointments as planned, but I’m afraid that won’t be possible. I’m due for surgery next week and will be hanging off my boots for a while while I recover.”
