Bob was born in Middlesbrough in 1959, and, along with his three brothers, was mainly brought up by his mother, when his father died while Bob was still very young. Keen on football, he tried out for Middlesbrough FC, which he supports, but ended up going to study law at Sussex University, having left school with 3 A Levels. He began working in London as a solicitor but attended performances by Vic Reeves, and they soon became friends and partners.
Bob suffers, like his mother, from rheumatoid arthritis, which he manages with steroids. Bob is married to Lisa Matthews and has 2 sons (Harry and Thomas).
