Matt Berry

When Love Of Diagrams were in town some years ago (2005 I believe), Luke turned me on to a cool show from England called Nathan Barley (make sure not only to check that out but everything else Chris Morris has been involved with, especially Jam). I fell in love immediately (as it is an amazing show), and started researching the people involved. This led me to The Mighty Boosh, which I then showed to just about every person who stepped foot in our house (and we have a lot of bands stay with us). I am glad to see that it is now airing on American television, and I like to think that in some small way I am responsible for that (I do love to get the word out about cool stuff and I did show it to a lot of people!).

Matt Berry was in the first series of The Mighty Boosh, so I also watched him in Garth Marenghi's Darkplace (awesome) and Snuff Box (totally weird and rad). He also wrote a musical about the birth of Jesus called AD/BC which I like to watch every year around the holidays.

I very much enjoy checking out people's entire body of work.

Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, Matt Berry.
