Southbank Centre

Key facts

Genre: Event with live subtitles

Author: Richard Ayoade


In a London exclusive, the writer and director reflects on his award-winning films, comedy and perhaps the best cabin crew dramedy ever filmed in conversation with Adam Buxton.

Ayoade first burst onto our screens as the character of Dean Learner in Garth Marenghi's Darkplace and Maurice Moss in the Emmy Award-winning The IT Crowd, for which he was awarded a BAFTA as Best Performance in a Comedy.

In addition to directing and co-writing Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, he has adapted and directed Joe Dunthorne’s novel Submarine for the screen, and is the co-writer (with Avi Korine) and director of film The Double, starring Jesse Eisenberg.

Hear from Ayoade as he reflects on making comedy and films, and argues for the canonisation of View From the Top, starring Gwyneth Paltrow, as a cinematic masterpiece.

Drawing on his latest book, Ayoade on Top, the author takes us on a journey from Peckham to Paris by way of Nevada and other places we don’t care about.
