Dan Robb - A Biography

When I was a nipper I wanted to be one of two things: Roger Moore or a writer on Sesame Street. So, having studied Film and English at Kent University, I chose to hone the use of my eyebrows for dramatic purposes by studying at the Drama Centre London. After two years of Laban and Stanislavski, I put all my training to good use by appearing in a panto in Southend. From there, I took the next logical step and formed a political theatre company, Badac, with my good friend Steve Lambert. 7 years of extensive touring with Badac finally took its toll on my liver and I decided to move into comedy. I cut my teeth with fringe stalwart Newsrevue, later forming a sketch show with fellow actor/writers Jess Ransom and Tom Webb. By now, though, the glamor and money of Fringe theatre was beginning to pale for me, so I started working as a script developer and analyst for a number of British film companies. Having spent the past few years developing a kids TV show, I’ve finally decided to put all my eggs into one lovely basket and launch my own website.
