During the crisis, Rob has kept himself busy with his hugely popular podcast Parenting Hell, co-presented with Josh Widdicombe, which has had over 25 million downloads. The show sees the pair interviewing fellow parents on their successes (or most likely failures) at parenting. Guests have included Katherine Ryan, Jonathan Ross, Kerry Godliman and many more. The podcast has been a comedy lifeline for many in these challenging times, and as a result it has been a regular fixture at the top of the iTunes podcast chart. He also starred in the third series of the BAFTA-nominated Rob And Romesh Vs, alongside best mate, Romesh Ranganathan, as well as ITV’s Paul Sinha’s TV Showdown.
And as if his performance talent isn’t enough, Rob has now penned a book – A Class Act – which is his autobiographical account of being working-class in the middle-class world of television and comedy. At work he’s the Cockney geezer, but to his mates down the pub in south-east London, he’s the theatrical one – a media luvvy. Even his wife and kids are posher than him! The book, which is a funny, candid and often moving account of what it feels like to be an outsider, is out now.
