From PEEP SHOW to MITCHELL AND WEBB, NEVER MIND THE BUZZCOCKS and COLD FEET, Robert Webb’s screen achievements as a creator, writer and actor have seen him become one of the most recognisable and best-loved faces in British comedy.

HOW NOT TO BE A BOY is the actor and author’s frank memoir, about a life shadowed by his tempestuous father and the early death of his mother. It’s also a refreshing rumination on masculinity.

In this wide-ranging conversation with Noelle McCarthy he talks about his life and work, and the way in which concepts of family and fatherhood continue to evolve.
