Boing Boing folks in Los Angeles, here's one not to miss: On Tuesday July 20, at 11:00pm, at UCB Theater in Hollywood, a "Look Around You DVD Screening & Q & A" evening with Robert Popper & Peter Serafinowicz. The Look Around You DVD will be released in the USA that same night, and it's about goddamned time. That series is one of my favorite things ever!
More about the LA event:
Come and witness the nonsensical wonders of science as Robert Popper (South Park, Peep Show) & Peter Serafinowicz (Couples Retreat, Shaun of the Dead) present an audio/visual presentation of handpicked episodes from their BAFTA nominated comedy series Look Around You (Season One), on the day of its DVD release. The critically acclaimed series, which first premiered on BBC AMERICA and currently airs on Adult Swim, guides us through a series of madcap science experiments. In Season One, viewers observe a colony of ants build an igloo, find out the largest number in the world and more.Again, tickets are released today, Friday July 9. The password is "thants."
*Please ensure you have your copybooks at hand as you will be asked to take down notes from the screen.
(thanks, Richard Metzger!)
