This might feel like the end of the week to you, but actually it's just the start. The start of... ROBIN COOPER WEEK!

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:

If you liked that, just wait until you see what happened next. That won't be long, either - we'll be publishing a new Robin Cooper phone call every day next week on Comedy Extra.

Robin who?

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.

Monday 30th - Call 2: A couple (i.e 2) days later
Tues 1st Dec - Call 3: A few days later (i.e. 3)
