Atsushi Tamura (born December 4, 1973) is a famous Japanese comedian from Hiko Island near Shimonoseki in Yamaguchi Prefecture, Japan. He and his partner, Ryo Tamura, form the Japanese comedic duo known as "London Boots, Mark1 Mark2". Though the two share the same surname, there is no family relation. The pair started their career by performing comedy on the streets of Tokyo. He once wanted to become a voice actor, but audition judges often pointed out that he has a hard time changing his voice. However, he finally landed a major role as voice actor (seiyuu) for Yoichi Hiruma (Eyeshield 21), who, like Atsushi, often tricks people, and has as a "servant" like Ryo.
