Bird to write Channel 4 sitcom

Simon Bird, the geek from ‘Inbetweeners’, has revealed his is to write a sitcom for Channel 4.

Hot on the heels of new BBC Three panel show ‘The King is Dead’, Bird revealed he is writing a sitcom with comedian Jonny Sweet and ‘Inbetweeners’ co-star Joe Thomas. He has never written a sitcom before but he was the president of Cambridge Footlights, so its not entirely shocking that opportunities will come his way.

Bird recently backed down from his outrageous wage demands for the up and coming ‘Inbetweeners’ film after Iain Morris’ Bwark production put out a casting call for his role.

We hate him.
