Confined to the Welsh airwaves, cable TV, bit parts and an endless succession of voiceovers, for many years it looked like all we'd hear of award-winning actor, writer, comedian and presenter Rob Brydon was his remarkable, gifted voice. In Small Man in a Book, he tells his story: of how a young(ish) man not quite from the valleys escaped these humble beginnings and very, very slowly became an overnight success.

'Superbly funny.' Heat
'Brydon guides us wittily through his early years. He's excellent at describing the nitty-gritty of being on stage.' The Times
'Very funny.' Scotsman
