And he does music videos too! I adore the way he completely hijacks the conversation with his messed up thinking. He does the “awkward nerd” like no one else in The IT Crowd and does a hilariously disgruntled shaman in The Mighty Boosh. Ayoade studied at Cambridge with John Oliver from the Daily Show and their brand of British humour is obviously similar – it’s all about realising how absurd life is and druly pointing it out. Like the little boy who realised that yes, that emperor is motherfucking naked. I love it!
