Rules for Being a Man:


Don't cry
Love sport
Play rough
Drink beer
Don't talk about feelings

But Robert Webb has been wondering for some time now: are those rules actually any use? To anyone?
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 considers the absurd expectations boys and men have thrust upon them at every stage of life. Hilarious and heartbreaking, How Not to Be a Boy explores the relationships that made Robert who he is as a man, the lessons we learn as sons and daughters, and the understanding that sometimes you aren't the Luke Skywalker of your life - you're actually Darth Vader.

Funny performance; male gender bashing clichés

Robert Webb is a very entertaining narrator and storyteller.

Sadly, his 'greater mission' is just the usual pseudo-liberal male gender bashing stuff. Disappointing and not very clever in that respect.
