The full length Rob Brydon interview video is available to watch now on BAFTA Guru.
Best known for his roles in numerous TV comedies including Human Remains, Marion and Geoff, Gavin & Stacey and The Trip, Rob Brydon is also an enviably successful writer, presenter and producer. On 27 April 2010, he joined Briony Hanson in Nottingham for a live BAFTA interview as part of the Screenlit Festival of Film, TV and Writing.
In school I was the funny one in the class who did impressions and wanted to make people laugh. I fit into that cliche very snugly indeed.
In the full video, available to watch now on BAFTA Guru, Brydon explains how he carved out a succesful acting career and considers the complexities of television comedy performance. With the comic delivery for which he is renowned he goes on to recount tales of his career - from his never-completed two years at drama school, to a stint working in radio and his eventual ‘lucky break’ into the TV industry.
