Video: When a stand-up comedian loses his luggage

When Welsh comedian Rhod Gilbert flew to Australia last year, he arrived at the airport's baggage carousel and had a nasty surprise. All that was left of his new wheelie bag was the metal handle. (Or at least that's what happened for the purposes of this comedy skit.) His version of his Q&A; with an airline worker is an amusing bit of old-skool comedy.

(Fun fact: Gilbert is the voice in TV commercials for the Welsh tourist-board.)
