Robert Brydon Jones, MBE (born 3 May 1965), known as Rob Brydon, is a Welsh actor, comedian, radio and television presenter, singer and impressionist. He played Dr Paul Hamilton in the Australian/British comedy series Supernova, Bryn West in the sitcom Gavin and Stacey and Keith Barret in the BBC comedy series Marion and Geoff and its spin-off The Keith Barret Show.

He has appeared in a number of shows for the BBC with Steve Coogan such as The Trip series in 2010, released as a feature film later that year; and The Trip to Italy in 2014, also edited and released as a feature film.

Since 2009, Brydon has presented the BBC One comedy panel show Would I Lie to You?. He played himself in Rob Brydon's Annually Retentive, a BBC Three panel show which ran from 2006 until 2007. Between 2010 and 2012, Brydon presented his own BBC Two late-night chat show called The Rob Brydon Show. Since April 2014, Brydon has hosted the Saturday-night game show The Guess List for BBC One.


From his first marriage Brydon has two daughters, Katie, born August 1994 and Amy, born July 1999, and a son Harry, born October 1996.

After being divorced, on 6 October 2006 Brydon married Claire Holland, a former producer on The South Bank Show, at Windsor church. They live in Strawberry Hill in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. They have two sons, Tom, born in April 2008, and George, born in June 2011. A fanatical golfer, Brydon is also a Swansea City fan and is an ambassador to their 1912 foundation.

Brydon has often been mistaken for comedian Ben Miller (and vice versa). As a reference to that mix-up, they dressed in similar outfits and shared a narcissistic kiss in the QI episode "Future", first broadcast on 20 February 2009.

In an attempt to impress his American girlfriend, Mischa, actor Steve Coogan accepts a commission from the Sunday newspaper, The Observer, to undertake a tour of leading restaurants in the north of England for a column in their monthly food magazine. However, when Mischa, who was expected to accompany Coogan on the tour, insists that they take a break from their relationship and returns to America, Coogan is obliged to search for another companion. After finding that other friends are "busy", he decides with feelings of some ambivalence to invite his former colleague, Rob Brydon, with whom he shares an uneasily competitive relationship. In the course of the trip, they eat a series of gourmet meals and visit sites linked to the Romantic poets Coleridge and Wordsworth, Coogan has casual sex with a couple of women working at their hotels, and the two men indulge in various forms of one-upmanship, including exchanging impersonations of famous actors such as Anthony Hopkins, Sean Connery, Woody Allen and most notably Michael Caine. At the end of the trip, Brydon returns to a nondescript suburban home and his evidently loving wife and child, while Coogan comes back to a glamorous but lonely riverside apartment: the closing shots show him staring broodingly out of the window. In the end he calls back his agent to reject a deal for the lead role in a US drama to remain close with his family.

Helena (Stephanie Leonidas) works with her parents (Gina McKee and Rob Brydon) at their family circus, but desires to run away and join real life. At the next performance, after Helena and her mother have a heated argument, Helena's mother collapses and is taken to the hospital. Ten days later, while Helena is staying with her grandmother, she finds that the doctors determine that Helena's mother requires an operation, and Helena can only blame herself for the situation. That night, she wakes up in a dream-like state and leaves her building to find three performers outside. As they try to perform for Helena, a shadow encroaches on the area and two of the performers are consumed by it. The third performer, Valentine (Jason Barry), a juggler, helps to quickly direct Helena to safety through the use of magical flying books. She learns they are in the City of Light which is slowly being consumed by shadows, causing its widely-varied citizens to flee. Soon Helena is mistaken for the Princess. She and Valentine are taken to the Prime Minister (Brydon). He explains that the Princess from the Land of Shadow stole a charm from the City of Light, leaving their White Queen (McKee) in a state of unnatural sleep and the City vulnerable to the Shadows. Helena notes the resemblance of the Queen and Minister to her mother and father, and offers to help recover the charm along with Valentine. They are unaware their actions are being watched by the Queen of Shadows (also McKee) who has mistaken Helena as the Princess of the Land of Shadows.
