An Evening with Robert Webb

No longer available

ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre

Talks & ideas

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. 

Supported by Platinum Bold Patrons Betsy & Michael Benjamin.
