Robert Webb - SOLD OUT

Wednesday 6th September 2017 7:30pm - 9pm The Glee Club Literary Event, Chargeable Event

**This event has now sold out**

Following nine series of Peep Show, and alongside Back, the new Mitchell and Webb sitcom, comes part-memoir, part call-to-arms from the award-winning and hilariously funny Robert Webb.

Looking back over his life, from schoolboy crushes (on girls and boys) to discovering the power of making people laugh (in the Cambridge Footlights with David Mitchell), and from losing his beloved mother to becoming a husband and father, Robert Webb considers the absurd expectations boys and men have thrust upon them at every stage of life.

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.

“Quite simply brilliant. I (genuinely) cried. I (genuinely) laughed out loud. It’s profound, touching, personal yet universal… I love it” - JK Rowling

Robert will be in conversation with the broadcaster, author and journalist, Mark Lawson.

Please note that if you choose the book & ticket option, your ticket will include a copy of How Not To Be A Boy, which can be collected from the Foyles stand at the event, or from Foyles, Grand Central Birmingham for up to 14 days after the event.

 

Tickets: SOLD OUT

Venue: The Glee Club, 70 Hurst Street, Birmingham, B5 4TD
