Peter Serafinowicz

Biography

Date of Birth 10 July 1972, Liverpool, England, UK Height 6' 5" (1.96 m) Peter Serafinowicz is an English comic actor, voice artist and composer of Polish descent. He made his broadcasting debut in 1993 on Radio 1 show The Knowledge, a spoof documentary about the music industry. From there he went on to perform in Radio 4 shows Weekending, Harry Hill's Fruit Corner, Grievous Bodily Radio and The Two Dannys. In 1998 he appeared on TV in Comedy Nation, following that up with a role in Simon Nye written sitcom How Do You Want Me?. Also in 1998 he starred in You are Here, where he met Robert Popper, with whom he was to create Look Around You. In 1999 he made a number of appearances in Channel 4 sitcom Spaced, playing principal character Tim Bisley's (Simon Pegg) arch-nemesis Duane Benzie. In 2000 he had a memorable appearance in an episode of the first series of the Channel 4 sitcom Black Books as Hywel Granger, a character with an abnormally deep and silky voice who worked as a radio announcer, perhaps a joke about Serafinowicz's career as an in-demand voice artist. In 2001 Serafinowicz took the lead in BBC2 sitcom World of Pub, playing the same character as he had done in the show's run on Radio 4. He was also in The Junkies, the world's first internet sitcom. In 2002 Look Around You debuted on BBC2. A series of 10 minute 70s school science video spoofs, they were critically acclaimed. Serafinowicz wrote the show alongside Popper, and appeared as a scientist in it. The show returned in 2005 as a spoof of 80s Tomorrow's World, with Serafinowicz playing Peter Packard, one of the presenters.
