Most British TV fans know Idris Elba from his role as John Luther in the popular dark crime drama Luther. (Maybe as drug lord Stringer Bell from The Wire. Or possibly as the guy who gives the canceling the apocalypse speech from Pacific Rim.) But most aren't used to seeing this particular actor being funny, and we don't often think of him as having comedic chops. 

Well, that's about to change.
