Well done. You’ve sorted through the embarrassment of riches that is the modern podcast landscape and found me, Rob Brydon, on my podcast. In this season of Brydon &, I talk to, among others: Harry Hill, Ben Elton, Julia Davis, Steve Coogan and Dame Harriet Walter. It’s terrific conversation, full of anecdotes and reminiscence where appropriate.– Rob Brydon
Richard E. Grant made his film debut in the comedy Withnail and I (1987). That film, and Grant’s tour-de-force performance as the title character, greatly inspired the creation of The Hobbledehoy.
Since Withnail, Grant has had supporting roles in the films Henry & June, L.A. Story, The Player, Bram Stokers Dracula, The Age of Innocence, The Portrait of a Lady, Spice World, Gosford Park, Bright Young Things, and Penelope.
In 2018 Grant’s critically lauded performance as “Jack Hock” in Can You Ever Forgive Me? earned him an Academy Award.
In September 2022, Grant released a memoir, A Pocketful of Happiness, mostly written in the last year of his wife Joan’s life.
