Matt Berry

Laszlo Cravensworth

"Laszlo Cravensworth," portrayed by Matt Berry, is a man of many talents. It’s impossible to measure the immense effect he’s had on culture, but throughout his life he’s been a musician, an artist and a pornographer. He is a dapper man and will do almost anything to make a fashion statement, including wearing a cursed witch skin hat. In his spare time, he loves to tend to his topiaries and prized among them are representations of vulvas he has known and loved. An erudite, an autodidact and a literal Renaissance man, Laszlo is also a man of (18th Century) science.
