Award-winning comedian Rod Woodward is the son of eminent Welsh sports writer, Karl Woodward, who recently retired as the longest serving member of the National newspaper of Wales, The Western Mail. He had planned to follow his Dad and take up a career in the media but, when offered a job as a studio audience warm up man at HTV Wales, took a year out from university to pursue his childhood ambition of becoming a professional comedian. The rest is Geography!
The 32-year old from Machen, South Wales, has been in big demand on the corporate circuit for many years and recent successes have gained him much wider public awareness.
Having supported Patrick McGuinness on his 110-night nationwide tour and appeared with Russell Brand at St. David's Hall, Cardiff last summer, he won the BBC comedy competition Funny Business in February 2008.
