Roberto Enríquez (Bob Pop)

Writer, humourist, and television critic

Roberto Enríquez, also known as Bob Pop is, he often says, torn between literature and wanting to eat. In 2010 he published his first novel, Mansos (Tamed), which was reissued by Alfaguara in 2021. He has also written other books including the humorous essay Cuando haces Bop ya no hay stop (When You Do Bop There’s No Stop, Ediciones Martínez Roca, 2013), the first volume of his personal and literary diaries, Días Ajenos (Distant Days, Somos Libros, 2017), and the essay Un miércoles de enero (One Wednesday in January) in which he writes as a media critic. He became known to the general public as a participant in Andreu Buenafuente’s programme Late Motiv (Movistar +), of which he was deputy director. He has given literary creation workshops in Barcelona and works on a regular basis with such media outlets as La Marea, La Sexta, and the channel Cadena SER. In 2021 he made his debut as a scriptwriter with the fictional TV series Maricón perdido (Queer You Are, TNT), which received the Ondas award for Best Comedy Series.
