This quite funny guy riffs, and rips, on Astrology.

Anyone know who he is?

UPDATE: Reader Paul K identified him – he’s Irish comedian Dara Ó Briain.

    We go out in the world and take our chances
    Fate is just the weight of circumstances

    Dara is great when he is a guest on “QI”, the British game show hosted by Stephen Fry.

    Dara also did a really interesting programme called School of Hard Sums about mathematics last year. He examined the sorts of math problems faced by first year university students and tried, not always successfully, to solve them.

    Dara studied mathematics and theoretical physics while at University College Dublin.

    Jeez, don’t any of you watch QI?
    Do a YouTube search – it’s my favorite show and Alan Davies is so damn cute.
    Dara is on there occasionally, at least enough that I knew who he was immediately.

    This goes back a couple of years, it seems. Brian Cox (no relation to the excellent actor I would assume) insulted astrology on his BBC2 show “Stargazing Live” back in 2011 and a bunch of British astrologers demanded an apology: I have to love O’Briain’s snarky comment that the BBC had its hands full apologizing for Top Gear. (Yeah, that was bad. Very, very bad.)
