There's A Massive Louis Theroux Appreciation Party Happening In The UK Next Week

There's A Massive Louis Theroux Appreciation Party Happening In The UK Next Week

If you know anything about anything, you'll know that Louis Theroux is an absolute god.

Not only has he provided us with years of TV gold, but he's also the king of the agonizingly awkward long pause, and he can rock a pair of librarian's glasses like nobody else.


To be honest, I wouldn't to the idea of him becoming Prime Minister, because, let's face it, there's not a single person in the UK who doesn't like him.

One Plymouth-based nightclub is clearly in agreeance, and is organising an entire night dedicated to celebrating "the sassiest man in television".

Fever and Boutique, which can be found in Derry Cross, is hosting a jazzy Theroux knees-up , which will feature t-shirts, key rings and lighters with the documentary makers face on.

As well as giving away goodies, the club will also be projecting classic episodes of 'When Louis Met' and "Louis Theroux: Weird Weekends", all night long.


A description on the event's official Facebook page also says that there will be "two rooms of music endorsed by Louis Theroux himself (Bassline & Disco)."

And the amazing Louis Theroux news doesn't stop there. Earlier this month, the BBC revealed it was adding no less than 70 of the journalist's most popular documentaries to iPlayer.

In Lagos, Nigeria, and investigates the high crime rates in Philadelphia, USA, from the perspective of the police and locals.

Weird Weekends spanned from 1998 to 2001 and gives viewers glimpses into the worlds of individuals and groups that they would not normally come into contact with.

In Self Fulfilment, Louis meets a Las Vegas hypnotist, and in Indian Guru, he meets westerners who have travelled to India for enlightenment.

Also in the series are Whites, Body Building, Looking For Love and Gangster Rap.

Another addition to iPlayer is the Louis Meets series, which shows the filmmaker meeting famous faces such as Anne Widdecombe and Chris Eubank.

Louis And The Nazis and Louis And The Brothel speak for themselves, but were both aired in 2003.

After failing to secure a deal to create a Michael Jackson documentary, Louis, Martin and Michael follows the journalist as he tries desperately to secure an interview with The King of Pop.

In the Miami Mega Jail series, Louis spends time in 'Main Jail' - one of the most notorious sections of the Miami jail system.

The Extreme Love series looked at how love comes out on top when conditions such as autism and dementia are involved and was aired in 2012.

The LA Stories series puts LA under the microscope and in Louis own words is 'immersive examinations of life at its most raw and emotional'.

One of Louis' most recent documentaries, Dark States, visits three American cities and examines a uniquely devastating human crisis in each: heroin addiction, sex trafficking and murder.

What a time to be alive.
