Robin Cooper Week begins today!
But what exactly do we mean by that? Here's the man himself (yes, Robin is a man) to explain:
Hello, it's Robin Cooper here. How are you? I'm in fine fettle. In fact, so fine a fettle am I in, that I've just whistled thrice.
Anyway, a little while back I received a letter saying that I had physically won 615,810 Euros in the Spanish Lottery. Congratulations! So I phoned the man, a gentleman by the name(s) of Don Luis Lopez to find out how I could get all my winnings...
This video depicts the first in a series of genuine phone calls between Mr Cooper and Don Luis Lopez:
Robin Cooper is, of course, the infamous creation of comedy polymath Robert Popper. Cooper has been on the wrong end of many a broadcast telephone conversation, from radio phone-ins to TV sports talk shows, and wrote the Timewaster Letters series.
As well as inhabiting the skin of his hi-pitched alter-ego, Robert Popper co-created Look Around You with Peter Serafinowicz, produced the third and fourth series of Peep Show, and a whole lot more.
Watch out all of next week for the newest Robin Cooper phonecalls on Comedy Extra.
