Robert Webb established himself among the edgiest of cutting-edge British comedy luminaries in the 2000s as the star of the envelope-pushing sitcom "Peep Show" (Channel 4, 2003- ) and one-half of the comedy team of Mitchell and Webb. Webb established creative partnership with David Mitchell at Cambridge University and cut his teeth in television as a writer and performer on a succession of Brit sketch shows in the early 2000s. Their tandem act helped sell dual starring roles in "Peep Show," a wickedly mean sitcom about irredeemably hapless roommates modeled after the stars' real-life personas by creators Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong. It led to a raft of nominations and awards and a sequence of projects under their Mitchell and Webb imprint, including their razor-sharp sketchcom show "That Mitchell and Webb Look" (BBC, 2006-2010) and the feature film "Magicians" (2007). As his star rose, Webb garnered some non-tandem-based leads, notably in the West End production of Neil LaBute's play "Fat Pig" and the loopy BBC Dickens homage "The Bleak Old Shop of Stuff" (BBC2, 2011-12). He reteamed with Armstrong and Bain on their new series "Fresh Meat" (Channel 4, 2011- ). With a deft talent for comically skewering social conventions and gleefully stabbing a conservative status quo, Webb made himself a bold new force of ribald iconoclasm in British comedy.
