I’m really excited to be a guest on Richard Herring’s amazing podcast this Sunday. I’ve been a huge fan of Richard’s for years. He’s ridiculously funny. Anyway, it’s at the Leicester Square Theatre in London – so why not pop along? This Sunday, 11th Oct at 4. Tickets are right here. Hope to se you there.

And here’s Robin Cooper calling the theatre to ask a few important questions…

Well done to the lovely lady at the theatre. I thought she was wonderfully polite.

Elsie wins the Spanish Lottery

by Robert Popper on September 4, 2015 · 2 comments

Back in 2009, I received a letter from a ‘Mr Don Luis Lopez’ claiming I’d won the Spanish lottery. It gave a telephone number, which I called – as Robin Cooper – and it resulted in a series of quite mental phone calls which I made for the BBC

Well, today I received a letter from a Mr ‘Antonio Lucas’ also claiming I’d won the Spanish lottery, so I called again. And… it’s the same chap! Anyway, this time I was Elsie a very, very, very old woman.

I will call over the next few days as the great-great-grandson, and see what occurs. So watch this space.

This was fun. Even though I’m cut off towards the end, I still enjoy the sheer sincerity of the preacher, as he sits there texting away…

Remember this one?

Wow, this was a pretty freaky phone call, but thank the Lord all hamsters were saved. Look out for the wild horn-blowing. (Apologies for sound quality).

Definitely proud of the squeaks at the end….
