If there’s anybody today who is capable of both defying expectations and using his unique brain to achieve remarkable things, it’s Oobah Butler. Over the past few years, he created London’s #1 rated restaurant in his garden shed, conquered Paris Fashion Week with a knock-off Armani brand ‘Georgio Peviani’, and transformed into an app entrepreneur to provide members of the public with their own improved versions of themselves, as documented in viral films during the pandemic with VICE Media. Recently, he became an LA Times and USA TODAY #1 bestseller with his debut book, How To Bullsh*t Your Way To Number 1. His documentaries have amassed over 250 million views online, catapulting him into new projects with the likes of director, Chris Smith (Tiger King/Fyre/American Movie). Oobah is now hosting MTV’s Catfish UK, with multiple episodes featured on Gogglebox and trending on Twitter in the US and UK upon premiere.

Reviews:

"Oobah is an actual Artist. He is, internationally, in a genre of one, and I can never wait to see what sensational idea he has next”

Marina Hyde, The Guardian  

“Both hugely elaborate and curiously insightful.”

BBC Beyond Today

"Oobah is a platinum-class, platinum-blonde force for good in this world and we should all pay close attention.”

Derren Brown  

"Oobah Butler is probably the best prankster working today.”

The AV Club

"I think Oobah might be a genius. His ability to take a ludicrous idea and run with it takes proper skill, but then to twist it further when you think it’s all over is divine. The world is a far funnier and more interesting place with people like Oobah in it.”

Joe Lycett
