How Not to Be a Boy
Award-winning comedian and actor Robert Webb visits Durham Book Festival to introduce his new memoir, How Not to Be a Boy.
Hilarious and heart-breaking, How Not To Be a Boy explores the relationships that made Robert who he is as a man, the lessons we learn as sons and daughters, and the understanding that sometimes you aren’t the Luke Skywalker of your life – you’re actually Darth Vader.
Robert Webb is best-known for his work in shows such as That Mitchell and Webb Look and in the acclaimed Peep Show.
Chaired by Professor Simon James.
