The Motochimp Looks Amazing

The Fully Charged show is from TV’s Kryten, Robert Llewellyn, and covers electric vehicles. This episode features his cohost giving this cyberpunk Motochimp electric scooter a trial.

All-electric motorcycles are awesome because they simplify the riding experience by removing the clutch just like this Motochimp does, though I’ve never seen any that look like this.

Llewellyn also invented the car interview formula popularized by Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee with criminally under-viewed Carpool show on YouTube.

Here’s an episode of Carpool with Stephen Fry:

Red Dwarf fans should get excited, starting tonight a three-episode series of episodes will be aired in the UK. Back to Earth will presumably be available after airing on sites for pirates.

In other smegging news, Robert Llewellyn (Red Dwarf’s Kryten) has been broadcast a series of short-form interviews while driving. Carpool is available for free on the web and via iTunes.

Says Llewellyn:

The idea started a few years ago when I recorded myself and comedian David Baddiel when he gave me a lift through London.

Many episodes have already been recorded and are up for airing on his site with guests such as TV’s Lt. Rimmer (Chris Barrie), Dave Lister (Craig Charles), and more. Both of those are embedded after the break.
