Staying In with Greg and Russell - Noel Fielding - Netflix

Noel Fielding (born 21 May 1973) is an English comedian, writer, actor, artist, musician and television presenter. He is known for being part of The Mighty Boosh comedy troupe alongside comedy partner Julian Barratt. Born and raised in London, Fielding was educated at Croydon School of Art and Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College (now Buckinghamshire New University). During the late 1990s he became a stand-up comedian, through which he met Barratt, with whom he established the Mighty Boosh. Together, the pair produced a 2001 radio series, The Boosh, for BBC Radio London. This was followed by a television series, The Mighty Boosh, producing three series for BBC 3 from 2004 to 2007. The show generated a cult fan following and won a variety of awards. During the 2000s, he also had smaller roles in a number of comedy shows for Channel 4 including Nathan Barley, The IT Crowd, AD/BC: A Rock Opera and Garth Marenghi's Darkplace. After The Mighty Boosh, he wrote and starred in two series of a solo show for Channel 4, Noel Fielding's Luxury Comedy, between 2012 and 2014. He also moved into other television avenues, appearing as himself; from 2009 to 2015, he appeared as a team captain on the BBC Two music/comedy panel show Never Mind the Buzzcocks, and since 2017 has co-presented The Great British Bake Off with Sandi Toksvig. Aside from his comedic and television work, Fielding has also exhibited his paintings in London. He is the founder of the band Loose Tapestries, formed with Kasabian's Sergio Pizzorno. He has also starred as a guest in Richard Ayoade's “Travel Man” series.

Staying In with Greg and Russell - The Mighty Boosh - Netflix

Fielding is best known for playing the role of Vince Noir, a childlike eccentric, opposite Julian Barratt (Howard Moon) in the cult comedy series The Mighty Boosh. Fielding met Barratt when he was performing a gig. Impressed by Fielding's skill, Barratt offered him a place to perform, and the two went on to form a partnership. Barratt and Fielding are said to have compared their relationship to a marriage; the character of Vince Noir is a kind, somewhat naive and loyal friend to the self-centred, neurotic and ambitious Howard Moon. Vince can talk to animals, earning him the nickname “Mowgli in Flares”. Vince is vibrant and flamboyant, contrasting with his friend Howard, who is more like a “geography teacher from Leeds”. As well as Noir, Fielding plays various supporting characters in the Mighty Boosh, including: Tony Harrison, a small pink head with tentacles and member of the shaman council; The Hitcher, a cockney hitch-hiker with a polo mint for an eye; The Moon; Spider Dijon, a bongoist in Rudi's band; and Old Gregg, a hermaphroditic merman obsessed with Baileys Irish Cream and watercolours. The Mighty Boosh has won the Shockwaves NME Best TV Award three times: in 2007, 2008, and 2010.
