Rod Gilbert received cheers from fellow comedians after announcing his stage 4 cancer diagnosis. In July, the 54-year-old comedian revealed he was battling cancer and on Sunday (November 12) spoke to his fans about his health. It was revealed that the comedy show had to be canceled due to worsening symptoms.

He told BBC Radio Wales: “My throat is so sore, my neck is cramped. I had to cancel the show because I couldn’t breathe. I have a lot of problems and I can’t solve them.” “I am getting better day by day,” he said.

She then noticed that “a bump appeared where it shouldn’t be” and was immediately diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. “I feel good and every day I feel better,” Gilbert said.

After the interview, comedians including Jimmy Carr, Rob Brydon, Angela Barnes, and Jason Manford shared messages promoting Gilbert’s stand-up DVD, Rod Gilbert: The Book of John.

Welsh comedian and actor Brydon called Gilbert “the greatest Welsh comedian” and added: “Hey, I’m Rob Brydon and I’m here to tell you about Welsh greatest comedian Rod Gilbert’s new DVD called The Book Of John.”
Meanwhile, Barnes said: “#RhodGilbert has long been one of my favorite comedians – and certainly one of my favorite people.

His latest show, The Book of John, is hilarious and now available on DVD and digital download.”

The comedian had planned to take The Book of John on tour in July but had to put his plans on hold due to the diagnosis. Instead, he turned it into a special DVD.

Gilbert’s fans were overjoyed when he saw the comedy world rooting for him and thought they would help promote the DVD as Gilbert was completely incapable of doing so.

One fan wrote: “All the British comedians on Rod Gilbert’s DVD promo for this is so flamboyant.”

In an interview with BBC Radio Wales, Gilbert, who has raised funds for Cardiff’s Velindre Cancer Centre, said his cancer diagnosis had “a lot of humor” and said: “I hope I can write it all down and one day bring it to the stage”.
