David Mitchell

Mark Lawson talks to the comedian David Mitchell about his life and career, from his partnership with Robert Webb to panel show regular and co-host of the series 10 O'Clock Live.

Mark Lawson talks to the versatile comedian David Mitchell about his life and career. In this charming interview, Mitchell charts his career from imitating newsreaders as a child to the award-winning success of That Mitchell and Webb Show and Peep Show.

Having grown up under the spell of 1980s television, Mitchell found his comedy soulmate in Robert Webb at a Footlights audition in Cambridge. Mitchell and Webb became established in fringe theatre and radio before That Mitchell and Webb Sound transferred to television to critical acclaim.

Mitchell's performance as Mark Corrigan in Channel Four's Peep Show cemented his position as a comic actor before going on to make his feature film debut with Webb in Magicians. He has remained loyal to his beloved small screen as a panel show regular and as co-host of the satirical series 10 O'Clock Live. Best known for his portrayal of 'furious, self-loathing and selfish failures', David Mitchell continues to delight audiences with his astutely observed vulnerability and irritability.
