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…
