Louis Theroux

Louis Sebastian Theroux (born 1970[1] (http://internettrash.com/users/louis_theroux/overview)) is a British(?) television presenter, best known for his series Louis Theroux's Weird Weekends[?] and When Louis Met...[?]. In the latter, he accompanied a different celebrity in each programme as they went about their day-to-day business, interviewing them about their lives and experiences as he did so. He is noted for his ability to get people to admit to revealing things about themselves by asking questions in a seemingly naive and innocent way.

He was born in Singapore[2] (http://internettrash.com/users/louis_theroux/overview), and was educated at Westminster School (where he was a friend and contemporary of the comedians Adam Buxton and Joe Cornish) and the University of Oxford.

He is the younger son of the American travel writer and novelist, Paul Theroux. His elder brother, Marcel Theroux[?], is also a writer and television presenter.

On April 21, 2002, he won the "Richard Dimbleby Award for the Best Presenter (Factual, Features and News)" at the BAFTAs, for his series When Louis Met...[3] (http://www.bafta.org/television/announce.htm).
