Rhod Gilbert: A Pain In The Neck | Preview (Channel 4)
As part of Channel 4's Stand Up To Cancer campaign, comedian Rhod Gilbert is to front a new documentary.
Over ten years Comedian Rhod Gilbert has raised almost £2million for cancer care. Whilst on a fundraising trek to raise money for Velindre Cancer Hospital in Cardiff he noticed worrying symptoms and would go on to be diagnosed with head and neck cancer.
Airing in the run up to Stand Up To Cancer this documentary is told largely through Rhod’s own personal video diaries.
With his typical unflinching and mordant humour, this sensitive and thoughtful documentary will show one of the UK’s best-loved comedians share his personal experience of living with cancer and receiving treatment at the very hospital he supported for over a decade.
If that wasn't enough, Rhod undertakes a personal challenge, not only to raise awareness of his condition and how it can be prevented in the future, but also to raise funds for the cancer hospital that played a pivotal role in saving his life.
Rhod Gilbert: A Pain In The Neck airs Monday 30th October at 9pm on Channel 4.
