Robert Popper webchat

Being involved in a successful sitcom is no easy feat. Just ask that guy serving you coffee. He tried. And failed.

As we enter the final few days of our sitcom writing competition, we've enlisted comedy giant Robert Popper to share some of his wisdom.

Robert has an enviable CV that includes working on The Inbetweeners, Peep Show and South Park. He also created the hit Channel 4 show Friday Night Dinner. In other words, he knows his stuff.

He's going to be available on September 20th to answer whatever questions you have for him so come back here at 1pm on Thursday and ask away.

Friday Night Dinner returns to Channel 4 very soon
