Biography

Bromham, Bedfordshire (1998 – present)

Matt Berry (born 1974 in Bromham, Bedfordshire) is a British actor, writer and musician known for his deep, booming voice and a grand, rather rogueish but charming manner.

He began his career as a runner before appearing in the video game magazine show Game Over on BSkyB’s computer and technology channel .tv, between 1998 and 1999.

Berry then assisted as an antiques expert in the ITV sketch show Monkey Trousers with Vic and Bob and Steve Coogan. Berry’s first prominent TV role was playing Todd Rivers/Dr Lucien Sanchez in the cult 2004 comedy series Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace and the 2006 spin-off Man to Man with Dean Learner. He later appeared as the eccentric and sinister tycoon/explorer Dixon Bainbridge in The Mighty Boosh. Berry first met The Mighty Boosh duo while performing at the Hen and Chickens Theatre, where they were resident in 2000. He can be seen in a small cameo performance in the The Mighty Boosh Live DVD.

He then went on to appear in the first season of The Mighty Boosh as Dixon Bainbridge, the eccentric, sinister tycoon/explorer and nemesis of Howard Moon. Berry first met The Mighty Boosh whilst performing at the Hen and Chickens theatre bar where they were resident in 2000 but, it was during the filming of the series that Berry met Rich Fulcher, who co-starred on Boosh as Bainbridge’s lackey, Bob Fossil. They proceeded to star in their own comedy show Snuff Box on BBC Three. Berry can be seen in a small cameo performance in the “The Mighty Boosh Live” DVD.

Berry also appears as a recurring character on The IT Crowd from series 2 onward.

    True story today... I feel asleep (and snoring according to my wife) during the SpongeBob movie. That was until Bubbles hit the screen. I heard Berry and sat up in my seat and loudly said "Matt Berry!" I was wide awake for the rest of the movie and was happy to see Matt get the last word in. Loved the rap battle at the end. I went and grabbed Kill the Wolf and Music for Insomniacs (haven't got anything Berry since Witchazel) when I got home. Bubbles stole the show!

    My favourite comedy actor and a damned fine musician. Pity that all the Snuff Box stuff is unavailable everywhere.
