He’s one half of a comedy double-act called The Mighty Boosh.

They had a TV show for a while that was one of the weirdest, funniest things ever on telly. They don’t do it now but it was mad (ask your mum).

He spent a lot of that show covered in ridiculous makeup being incredibly silly.

It was a lot of fun! Look – seaweed hair!

He also made a pretty convincing Moon.

(Yep, believe it or not, that isn’t the real thing!)

Noel Fielding as the Moon

For a while he was a team captain on a long-running musical comedy panel show called Never Mind The Buzzcocks.

He specialised in delivering answers that were complete nonsense, but he also got the highest score in the whole show’s history. This got cancelled. Shame.

He was in the sitcom The I.T. Crowd, where he played a basement-dwelling Goth named Richmond.

Look at that contouring!

He also had his own show on Channel 4, Noel Fielding’s Luxury Comedy.

It was deeply, deeply strange.
