Called An Evening With Rob Brydon, it aimed to raise funds for the charity, which plans to develop a multi-million pound rehabilitation and wellbeing centre in the grounds of Morriston Hospital.

Mrs Davies said: "He was absolutely on fire. It was a wonderful atmosphere."

Rob goes with the flow

"I HEAR you've just made a film about James Corden's life story" joked Rob Brydon with fellow Port Talbotan Paul Potts.

Baglan comedy star Rob Brydon to host VIP buffet after his show in Swansea's Grand Theatre

FANS of comedy star Rob Brydon will get the chance to meet their hero when he hosts a swanky buffet in Swansea.

The Gavin and Stacey star will happily chat, pose for pictures and sign autographs at a one-night only event next week.

But it will come at a price as Rob will be in the city to raise as much cash as he can for one of his favourite charities.

The award-winning Baglan funnyman will present An Evening With Rob Brydon at the Grand Theatre next Monday in aid of Treat Trust Wales.

Rob is a patron of the city-based charity, which aims to develop a multi-million therapy centre in the grounds of Morriston Hospital.

And not surprisingly, tickets are selling fast. They include a limited number of VIP packages, which include some unique extras.

As well as the best seats and pre-show and interval drinks and nibbles, each package includes an invitation to an after-show party in the Grand Circle Bar — which Rob himself will be hosting.

Entry is by wristband only, which VIP ticket-holders will collect when they arrive for the show.

Treat Trust Wales founder Melanie Davies said: "Rob will be finishing the show and then heading straight for the buffet, which he wanted to host personally. He'll be circulating, chatting to people and talking about Treat.

''He's more than willing to pose for pictures and he will sign autographs too.

"It's a really rare chance for people to get to meet Rob, who is not only an international star, but also a really nice man.

"He's exactly the same as he appears on TV and on stage — very friendly, down to earth and very funny."

Melanie broke her back in a Port Talbot motorbike accident more than 30 years ago.

Later in life she had breast cancer, and it was while recovering that she came up with the idea for Treat, which aims to offer rehabilitation for people from all walks of life.

Its president is Port Talbot singing star Paul Potts, who will be at next week's concert. As well as Rob, the patrons' list include Michael Sheen, Swansea's Kev Johns and Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson.

An Evening With Rob Brydon will feature comedy musings, readings from Rob's best-selling autobiography Small Man In A Book and the odd musical interlude.

"It will be a friendly, funny evening but people shouldn't come to it expecting a stand-up show," he said.

"It will be more intimate than that — by which I mean I'll be naked!"

Tickets and VIP packages are on sale at the Grand Theatre box office, with the proceeds going to Treat Trust Wales.
