From 'What We Do in the Shadows' to 'Community,' these are seven of Matt Berry's most funny roles

From 'What We Do in the Shadows' to 'Community,' these are seven of Matt Berry's most funny roles ...

Matt Berry is well-known among British comedy enthusiasts for his role in The Mighty Boosh. Others may recognize him as Victorian vampire Laszlo Cravensworth in What We Do in the Shadows or even as the voice of the droid 8D8 in The Book of Boba Fett.

Berry's funnypersons are usually over-the-top narcissists who are capable of delivering outrageous and often downright hilarious dialogue with a completely straight face. His booming voice and willingness to wear a ridiculous outfit make him one of the greatest comedians in recent history.

'Garth Marenghi's Darkplace': Todd Rivers/Dr. Lucien Sanchez

Berry plays an eccentric doctor named Dr. Lucien Sanchez in his first television role.

Berry's debut into the outrageously bizarre world of British comedy sets the tone for some of his later characters.

Dixon Bainbridge 'The Mighty Boosh'

Berry's portrayal of Dixon Bainbridge, who is a part-time scientist, part-time adventurer, and the owner of the "Zooniverse," fits right into the surrealist comedy. His flair for colorful vocabulary starts to shine, calling the resident python "the windy guy, the long mover."

One of Bainbridge's standout moments is his rendition of "Total Eclipse of the Heart," performed alongside Berry's long-time colleague Rich Fulcher in the role of Zookeeper Bob Fossil.

Douglas Reynholm 'The IT Crowd'

Berry plays Denholm Reynholm (Chris Morris), the previous director of Reynholm Industries. Douglas makes a memorable entrance following his dad's death, shouting "FAAAAATHER" down the church aisle at his funeral before engaging in fisticuffs with the priest.

Berry portrays a gruesome, self-assured, crude HR nightmare as Douglas's boss in his usual panache. Douglas's corporate wardrobe consists of many an open-collared shirt, and his relentless pursuit of Jen (Katherine Parkinson) culminates in him carrying a "ball-taser" around his nether regions, much to his displeasure.

Steven Toast 'Toast Of London'

Steven Toast is a washed-up, middle-aged actor who believes his career is a success, despite being quite the opposite. Toast is a self-proclaimed ladies man who has an affair with his acting arch-rival, Ray Purchase's (Harry Peacock) wife.

Toast makes the best of what he has, working as a voiceover artist, an erotic book author, and a tour bus guide, despite many unfortunate situations. Berry's uncanny ability to make a cringe-worthy, outrageous character lovable

Grifting Professor 'Community'

Berry makes his name as the professor of Grifting 101, the latest course offered at Greendale Community College. He uses many pseudonyms, but Roger DeSalvo seems to be his main one.

The professor's fierce rivalry with Greendale's resident grifter Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) becomes the episode's focal point, ending with Berry's character being beaten as his own game. However, he holds his own among the Greendale team, as only Matt Berry can.

Eli Rabbit 'Year Of The Rabbit'

In this crime-comedy set in Dickensian London, Berry plays Eli Rabbit, a foul-mouthed, booze-riddled detective who likes to act first and think later. This Cockney cop has seen everything and is brutal in his pursuit of justice.

Berry manages to combine the charm of a hard-boiled detective with the charm of a classic British detective, all while laughing at the audience. His constant profanity may contradict a traditional Dickensian narrative, but Berry makes it work. His incredible mutton chops alone are well worth the look.

'What We Do In The Shadows,' says Laszlo Cravensworth.

Berry plays Victorian aristocratic vampire Laszlo Cravensworth in one of his best roles. He lives with his good lady wife Nadja (Natasia Demetriou) and their friend Nandor the Relentless (Kayvan Novak). Laszlo is charmingly soft, a persistent oversharer about his sexual exploits, and a skilled topiaristhis vulva garden speaks for itself.

Laszlo's unique ability to be ridiculous yet endearing has made him a fan favorite. His unexpected affection for human neighbor Sean (Anthony Atamanuik) has even become meme fodder, "He's my best friend, my pal, my rotten soldier, my sweet cheese, my good time boy."
