Berry recently commissioned Amber Creative to update his home studio to be a more professional work area for recording and writing music.

  1. God, Matt Berry plays such (delightful) jerkasses, but seems like he’d be a severely cool guy in person.

    …not to mention the love of Prophets.

  2. I never knew that about him.

    IT crowd kicked ass. As did Black Books by the same creator.

    He does look like he would be fun to talk with.
