Richard Ayoade
View From the Top

Prepare to chortle as comedy great, Richard Ayoade, discusses his award-winning career as an actor, screenwriter and director in TV and film and his new book Ayoade on Top. Fasten your seatbelts as he takes us on ‘a journey from Peckham to Paris by way of Nevada and other places we don’t care about’ – a ride as hilarious as it is wonderfully weird. For, as his character Maurice Moss in The I.T. Crowd would say, ‘I like being weird. Weird’s all I’ve got. That and my sweet style.’

‘A work of shimmering genius.’ Stephen Fry (on The Grip of Film)

In conversation with Tom Gatti, Deputy Editor of the New Statesman
