Welcome to our host, Robert Webb

 

robertwebbRobert Webb grew up in Lincolnshire as a prelude to Cambridge University.   He joined Cambridge Footlights where he met David Mitchell and went on to form one of the UK’s most successful comedy partnerships.

Together, they were nominated for and won a clutch of BAFTAs for their starring roles in Channel 4’s longest running sitcom, Peep Show and That Mitchell and Webb Look for BBC2 .

In theatre, Robert starred as the title role, Bertie Wooster, in the West End version of Jeeves and Wooster – Perfect Nonsense and played Roy in the all-star West End transfer of Neville’s Island.

In 2016, Robert revived the iconic “Jeremy” in the ninth and final series of Peep Show and led the cast in Our Ex-Wife, for BBC 2.  

Robert reunited with David Mitchell for a new Channel 4 sitcom, Back, about a dysfunctional family running a pub.

His memoir How Not Not To Be A Boy launched in the Autumn of 2017 to critical acclaim. He also remains a regular columnist for the New Statesman.​
