Rhod Gilbert visits IGL
Image Group London are very excited about their BBC work with the famous comedian Rhod Gilbert and his wonderful team. We had the most amazing day ever, such a great time with a truly gifted guy who was very sensitive as to our aspirations.
The stand-up comedian faces the daunting challenge of performing as a woman on stage. Rhod Gilbert is always told he has the toughest job in the world, but in this work experience he is facing a challenge he has been dreading – performing in front of a packed audience as a woman. Coached by one of the country’s leading cross dressing services, Femesque a well known drag artist and waxed and groomed by Image Group London, it was a team effort to get Rhod looking as feminine as possible. Can he convince an expectant crowd that this is a new, and very different, Rhod Gilbert on stage?
Check it out on BBC Wales on Monday 21st May 10.25pm. We will post dates for mainstream TV in the near future. Here is the series promo: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00sgp7f
