Robert is the latest in a long line of luminaries to come second: Wise, Ball, Saunders, Pin, Baddiel, Herring, McCartney, and now Webb.
With David, he's written and performed an episode in Twisted Tales, a series of stylish but funny horror stories on BBC Three.
There was also a single series of The Mitchell and Webb Situation (2001) on Play UK and two series of the BBC Radio 4 sketch show That Mitchell and Webb Sound (2003 and 2005).
Both Mitchell and Webb also wrote for and appeared in the legendary BBC sketch show Bruiser, which featured hitherto-unknown talents like Martin Freeman, Matthew Holness, and some writer called Gervais.
Oh, and he gets his kit off in the film Confetti.
