Robert Newman’s backstory is interesting. He started out as Rob Newman, middlebrow impressionist and the partner of David Baddiel, doing funny and quite radical (if relatively apolitical) stuff on BBC radio. Then TV. They then sold out Wembley arena. And stopped performing together. He more or less dropped out of comedy, wrote novels, struggled to make ends meet. And now he’s performing again. Try to find the documentary ‘Scribbling’ if you can.


Looks good (in IE at least.)


Indeed it does. Thanks for the link.


Everybody (including the trolls), please watch this. I know 45 minutes is a long time to watch something that doesn’t feature cute cats, but its worth it.


Has anyone got any tips on how to find scribbling ?


*taps fingers on desk and wonders why nobody is postin*

\”Postin\” -Southern Verb, to post. lol
