Larry "Guru Larry" Bundy Jr. is a featured video contributor on TGWTG.com. He currently produces Wez + Larry's Top 10 with cohort Wesley "Wez" Lock. Larry has been featured on several British television channels as well, including XLEAGUE.TV, Rapture TV, and Game Network. His shows on other sites include Games Yanks Can't Wank, Hack-Job, Pop-Up Review, and Guru Larry's Retro Corner.

Beginning on TGWTG

Guru Larry, after talking with Channel Awesome founder Mike Michaud, joined TGWTG.com and Blistered Thumbs with his and Wez's first video for the site, Wez + Larry's Top Ten Wacky Japanese Games. He subsequently released the first episode of Guru Larry's Retro Corner on the site, with brand new, never before seen episodes coming soon.

Personal Life and Career

Guru Larry was born on May 9, 1979, and currently lives in London. His real name is "Larry Bundy", with him adding the Jr. part himself.

"I originally added the Jr. bit to stop getting mail mixed up with my Dad. Also, it's supposed to be "Jnr" in the UK, but I preferred the US way of spelling it." - Guru Larry

Before working on videos, Larry worked as a freelance Manga/Anime artist. He worked for companies like Bungie on Oni, did the art to the Action Replay on the GBA, as well as the April 2003 cover of EDGE magazine. He also did most of the art for an obscure PC game called "Akimbo: Kung Fu Hero" which, according to Larry, no one has ever heard of. He has also been working for years on a online comic strip called "Natural Born Kittens" a sitcom about four teenage demon goddesses living in a London suburban council house, planning to take over the world, as soon as they can get their powers. He admits it's a very British comedy. Larry is also currently working with Alastair Swinnerton, the creator of LEGO Bionicle, as well as speaking to a few anime houses in Japan, such as Imagi and Madhouse about getting the show animated.

Larry also used to portray "Tangoman" in a series of TV adverts for Tango, Pepsi's European Orangeaid drink.
