Robert Webb

From Footlights to Peep Show to national newspaper columnist, Robert Webb is a household name. Join him in conversation with Helen Lewis of the New Statesman as he looks back over his life and shares his thoughts on masculinity and manhood. From schoolboy crushes (on girls and boys) and learning to make people laugh, to losing his mother and becoming both a husband
and father, Robert Webb considers the absurd expectations boys and men have thrust upon them at every stage of life. Heartbreakingly funny.
