With south London cheek and man-of-the-people charm, Rob takes a look at the absurdities of the world, the quirks of his family life, the strangeness of the middle classes, and why silly pranks are brilliant.

As well as appearing in ITV’s Paul Sinha’s TV Showdown, Rob can also be seen alongside Romesh Ranganathan in Rob And Romesh Vs and as the unmistakable voice of Celebs Go Dating. He has co-hosted The Royal Variety Performance in 2019 with Romesh, the first time two comedians had hosted the event together in over 30 years. He has also hosted Children in Need and Comic Relief. 

Rob can also be heard alongside Josh Widdicombe on their highly successful podcast Parenting Hell through which they interview fellow parents. Guests have included Katherine Ryan, Jonathan Ross and Kerry Godliman.

His book A Class Act, is an autobiographical account of being working class in the middle-class world of television and comedy.
