My Best Teacher podcast: The Fast Show star Charlie Higson

In this episode of the My Best Teacher podcast, we chat to comedian, writer and author Charlie Higson, best known for playing a host of hilarious characters in The Fast Show. We chat about:

  • His brilliant art teacher, Bob White, and how he influenced his thinking.
  • His slightly strange primary school.
  • A new story he's written called Worst.Holiday.Ever that draws on memories of a French student exchange – including philosophical discussions about the wind.
  • Putting on school plays inspired by Monthy Python.
  • And whether any of his teachers inspired characters on The Fast Show.
