* Keith Moon, original drummer for Music/TheWho. He got himself banned from several hotel chains for literally demolishing toilets, with low explosives; and, in one case, he insisted the cab driver turn around just because he forgot to destroy the room's television set by throwing it into the pool. As {{Website/Cracked}} pointed out in ''[[http://www.cracked.com/article_18586_the-7-most-impossible-rock-stars-to-deal-with.html The 7 Most Impossible Rock Stars to Deal With]]'', Keith may as well have invented the AllDrummersAreAnimals trope, because he was certainly responsible for cementing it in the public conscious and popularizing it.

* Creator/JudeLaw had a very cloudcuckoolanderish moment during a promotional interview for the ''Film/SherlockHolmes'' movie. When asked what his "detective name" would be, he replied: "Banjo Heywood." In this case, "what would your detective name be?" is a pretty cuckoolandy question to ''ask'' someone, so it's hardly surprising that the response would be odd as well. Especially since "Jude Law" would already be pretty awesome as a detective name. Or an Old West sheriff.

* Canadian interviewer Creator/NardwuarTheHumanServiette has an eccentric personality seen in all of his interviews. He's known for his [[{{Keet}} high amounts of energy]], odd choices in clothing, and ability to know obscure personal facts about his interviewees.

* Tetris player Douglas Quaid has used five different names in different years of the Classic Tetris World Championship (Hauser, Quaid, Sean, Douglas, Ritchie). Hauser was his 2017 identity, where he donned a fake moustache to conceal his identity. His favourite game besides Tetris is Microsoft Paint.

* Rhod Gilbert. For example: during an appearance on ''Series/QI'', he forgot ''his own age'' and asked the rest of the panel if there was a song or something he could learn to help him remember it (Katherine Ryan helpfully made one up for him). He eventually said he was forty-nine, only for Sandi Toksvig to correct him when the producers informed her, via her earpiece, that Gilbert was in fact forty-eight.

to:

* Creator/WilliamBlake. He was a utopian anarchist and subscribed to a very unusual type of Christianity. He also wrote a large amount of very strange literature, most infamously his prophetic books. While brilliant, these books, such as ''Milton'' and ''Jerusalem'', are notorious among scholars for making [[MindScrew no goddamn sense]].

* Creator/HPLovecraft. He wished he lived in the Eighteenth Century, lived in his head, had trouble connecting with other people, married a Jewish woman even though he was an Anti-Semite (and apparently he genuinely loved her), found it easier to be affectionate to cats than people, wrote around 75,000 letters, had his own nihilistic philosophy, supported FDR because he though the New Deal was American-style fascism, freaked out after discovering he was part Welsh, and created [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos some of the strangest fiction... ever, probably.]] Weird dude all 'round.
