The second series of The In Crowd was transmitted on Radio 4 in May and he hosted a 7 part stand-up show Spanking New for BBC 7. He has also appeared on We've Been Here Before and Mitch Benn's Crimes Against Music for Radio 4

Robin wrote and performed the tremendously successful John Peel meets the dictators’ monologues for The 11 O’Clock Show. His other recent television credits include; BBC 2’s The Office; Channel 4’s A to Z of Music; Comedians in Crisis; ITV’s Comedy Café; Pub Fiction with Al Murray on Carlton; BBC Choice’s Ralf Little Show and Brain Candy. Robin also wrote and performed two series of award- winning MTV adverts with Ricky Gervais.

As a writer, Robin is currently developing a number of projects for both television and radio including a comedy show for MTV with Ricky Gervais and the intriguingly entitled Buzz Monkey for Radio One. His extensive writing credits include: Alastair McGowan’s Big Impression; The Priory V Graham Norton and The Sketch Show.

Robin is an expert on cinema and a self-confessed movie buff and is a regular reviewer for BBC 4’s DVD Collection. He has written essays for books on Elvis and Christopher Walken and reviewed films for FHM and Six Degrees, as well as regular appearances on Carlton TV’s Movie Nights. He has hosted the Primal Screen film marathons at The Prince Charles Cinema in London, where he also comperes Quirk, their weekly film and comedy night, and numerous other film evenings, including Cinergy at the ICA and the prestigious Directors Talk series at the Curzon Soho.

He finds time to gig extensively on the UK circuit and abroad as both a Stand up and Compere, including South Africa and Bosnia where he supported The Stranglers in front of 1500 squaddies. His performance is highly improvised and off the wall flitting from the worlds of physics, The Prisoner to clown marriages. His show Rubbernicker with Ricky Gervais was a huge sell-out success at the 2001 Edinburgh Festival.

His warm and affable style has made Robin an obvious choice as a warm up for a wide variety of television shows from Shooting Stars to University Challenge. He is also a favourite for corporate events having delighted Stella Artois, AT & T and The Posthouse Group and Future Publishing Group to name but few.
