I first saw Richard (oh look at me talking about him like I know him, deal with it please for the duration of my blog’s longevity) on The IT Crowd. He’s hilarious as IT specialist Moss and has some of the best dialogue in the series.
In addition to a keen sense of humor, he’s a talented director.
Fell even more in love when he directed his feature films Submarine and The Double, both of which I enjoy and recommend. They’re dark films but his humor shines throughout, and both are gorgeously shot and art directed.
Lately I’ve been catching Richard on the Gadget Man series, which you can find several episodes of on YouTube. He’s the perfect host, witty and charming to the camera and lively with guests. (gifset source: 1, 2)
