Who is Robert Webb married to?

In 2006, Robert married Abigail, who was also a comedy performer at the time. They first met whilst Robert was recording the radio sketch show ‘The Bleak Old Shop of Stuff’.

Burdess is currently an actress and writer, known for ‘That Mitchell and Webb Look’, ‘The Bleak Old Shop of Stuff’ and ‘Jade Dragon’.

Robert and Abigail have two daughters together and the family live in Kilburn, London.

Robert on life with wife Abigail

Last year, Robert revealed that he and his wife fight like any other married couple when asked what it was like being married to a fellow comedian.

He told Lifestyle Daily: “Like any other couple, we fight, but probably using slightly more stupid voices. We’re not really competitive with each other”.

Robert added:

There’s a disparity between who’s had a break when. I had a massive break with Peep Show in 2003 but it hasn’t really happened for Abi in quite the same way. She’s very successful compared with most actors and writers in that she makes a living, but she hasn’t had the ludicrous good fortune that I have.
