Who is the man behind the many voices of Rob Brydon? Quite unasked, Rob Brydon has invited himself into the living rooms (and occasionally bedrooms) of television-watching households up and down the land. His warmth and humour, not to mention inspired impressions, have helped turn this multi-award-winning actor, writer, comedian and presenter into one of our favourite entertainers. But there was a time, a long time, when it looked like all we'd hear of Rob was his remarkable, gifted voice. Growing up in South Wales, Rob had a passion for radio (his hero was DJ Jimmy Savile) and even on-air humiliation aged just thirteen was not to put him off. For years the Welsh airwaves resounded to his hearty burr while he later became the voice of just about every household brand in the country - if appliances could talk they'd speak like Rob. All of them. However, it was his television breakthroughs with Marion and Geoff and later Gavin and Stacey that saw Rob at last tickling the nation's funny bone till it hurt. The rest, as they say, is history. Or in his case autobiography. A Small Man in a Book is a funny, heartfelt, honest, sometimes sad, but really mainly funny, portrait of how a young man from Wales very, very slowly became an overnight success.
