Robert Webb

Comedian, Actor, Writer (Mitchell & Webb, Peep Show) discusses his new book How Not To Be A Boy

Following ten series of Peep Show, and alongside Back, the new Mitchell and Webb sitcom, comes part-memoir, part call-to-arms from the award-winning and hilariously funny Robert Webb.

Looking back over his life, from schoolboy crushes (on girls and boys) to discovering the power of making people laugh (in the Cambridge Footlights with David Mitchell), and from losing his beloved mother to becoming a husband and father, Robert Webb considers the absurd expectations boys and men have thrust upon them at every stage of life.

Hilarious and heart-breaking, How not To Be a Boy explores the relationships that made Robert who he is as a man, the lessons we learn as sons and daughters, and the understanding that sometimes you aren’t the Luke Skywalker of your life – you’re actually Darth Vader.

“Quite simply brilliant. I (genuinely) cried. I (genuinely) laughed out loud. It’s profound, touching, personal yet universal… I love it” - JK Rowling

“Takes us deftly from hilarity to heart-stopping hurt … A truly great read, full of heart” - Dawn French

“A witty, honest coming of age story with a subtext that tackles masculinity and manhood … I could hear Webb’s voice throughout, and that’s a storytelling skill many would kill for” - Ian Rankin

Presented by THSH in association with Foyles
