Richie Webb

Richie Webb is a British comedy writer, actor and composer. He was educated at Wolverhampton Grammar School.

He is a composer of music for television – often with partner music producer Matt Katz – contributing to many comedy, entertainment and children's programmes, most notably Horrible Histories, the multi-award-winning CBBC sketch show where Webb's music is regarded as a key ingredient of the show's success.[1]

As a writer and performer he is perhaps best known for his work on numerous BBC Radio 4 comedy programmes[2]. He began his career as a member of The Cheese Shop and went on to have regular musical comedy slots on both Week Ending and Parsons and Naylor's Pull-Out Sections[3]. He is currently creator and star of 15 Minute Musical which won the Writers' Guild Award for Best Radio Comedy[4] and writes and stars in BBC Radio 4's "The Music Teacher"[5].

Along with Dave Lamb and other Warwick University alumni he runs a radio production company Top Dog Productions, which makes comedy and drama for BBC Radio 4[6].

He lives in Warwickshire, and has a season ticket for West Bromwich Albion.[2]
