I’m Ken Plume, and soon you’ll be listening to “A Bit Of A Chat” with me, Ken Plume.

In this episode, I’m having a bit of a chat with actor and musician Matt Berry.

Though he’d been making his way around the club circuit as a musician and performer for a few years up to that point, Matt Berry first hit TV screens in the brilliant (and affectionate) send up of low-budgeted and over-acted 80’s dramas, Garth Marenghi’s Dark Place, in the role of cocky surgeon Dr. Lucien Sanchez.

What followed was the equally memorable role of Dixon Bainbridge in the cult hit The Mighty Boosh, a recurring role on the Dark Place “spin-off” Man To Man with Dean Learner, and the even more cult show Snuff Box, which he co-created and co-starred in with fellow Boosh alum Rich Fulcher.

He’s perhaps best known now for playing the unhinged CEO of Renyholm Industries, Douglas Renholm, in Graham Linehan’s hit sitcom The IT Crowd

What you may not know is that Berry is also a musician, who’s third album - Witchazel - is available on Valentine’s Day. For more information, check out his MySpace page at www.myspace.com/mattberrysmusic

Oh, and you can preview a track from his new album HERE

A small note on this interview - please excuse the less-than-stellar audio quality. I could give you the reasons for it, but they’d most likely only bore you.

Here now is my chat with Matt Berry… Hope you enjoy…

    W.O.W! I must say, Matt Berry Is God.

  2. Mongo Says:

    Most excellent - Matt Berry’s genius can also be found in AD/BC for those that grab his every morsel of divine comedy.

  3. Untamed Aggression Says:

    FANTASTIC.

  4. Berrly Legal Says:

    Any news? Talk was of Valentine’s Day. Where’s the album? Where to get it?

  5. Untamed Aggression Says:

    I’m thinking he might be holding it back, maybe to release closer to his Scala gig in April. I certainly haven’t been able to find anything on it, and I’ve been looking.

    Oh, I’ve BEEN LOOKING…

  6. Berrly Legal Says:

    Looking forward to it. I’ve peaked the interest of all my co-workers with the album cover. Doing my best to spread the plezzures of Mr. Berry to Seattlites.
