Life Lessons from Robert Webb

Join one half of one of the most accomplished comic duos in Britain as he and psychologist Tanya Byron explore what it means to be a boy – and a man – in 21st century Britain.


Join one half of one of the most accomplished comic duos in Britain as he and psychologist Tanya Byron explore what it means to be a boy – and a man – in 21st century Britain.

In The School of Life’s Life Lessons series, clinical psychologist, writer and broadcaster Professor Tanya Bryon explores the psyches of some of the most eminent figures in our culture – from politicians to CEOs, artists to philosophers. Now it’s time to explore what it’s like being Robert Webb – and above all, a chance to explore what being a man really means.
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 will consider the absurd expectations boys and men have thrust upon them at every stage of life.

Professor Tanya Byron is a clinical psychologist specialising in working with children and adolescents. Drawing from her many years of professional experience, she will explore with Robert the assumptions that shape our idea of masculinity, especially in early life. Their conversation will look at the expectations placed on young men, the normalising approach to gender roles which influence us in our development and affect our ideas about identity and acceptable behaviour.
