UPROXX 20: Wordplay And Helicopter Stories With Peter Serafinowicz


You know Peter Serafinowicz’s voice from his work in Axe Cop, Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, and as the sassiest version of Donald Trump in Sassy Trump YouTube videos. You also know his face from Spaced, Shaun Of The Dead, Guardians Of The Galaxy, and most recently, as the title character in Amazon Prime’s The Tick (which launches its second season today with all episodes available to stream). But do you know his wit? If not, enjoy this thorough introduction by way of clever answers (and non-answers) to the questions from our ongoing UPROXX 20 series. Hell, enjoy them even if you are familiar with the Serafinowicz wit. Permission granted!
