Last night, in order to celebrate the release of the Region 1 compatible version of the BBC show Look Around You, the creators of the show, Robert Popper and Peter Serafinowicz, did a live show at the UCB. It was hosted by Patton Oswalt and it was so hilarious. If you don’t know Look Around You, it’s a faux educational show for children that is just nutty and British and awesome. Here, watch the episode about Maths.
If you don’t know the guys who created it, you might recognize Peter Serafinowicz as Simon Pegg’s mean roommate-turned-zombie in Shaun of the Dead, or you might recognize him as the voice of Darth Maul. He also has a hilarious Twitter account.
Since the audience contained half of the staff of Chud and half of Tim and Eric (the Tim half) as well as Chris Hardwick, I’ll leave the reviews to those guys, but rest assured it was an awesome night. I was lucky enough to know someone with both a region-free DVD player and copies of the BBC version, so I’m just excited that the rest of America can bask in the hilarious glow. Go out and buy Look Around You now!
