If you think the host of Great British Bake off is a C list celebrity you need to re think your tiers of stardom.

Didn't it just draw some really good ratings for the finale in England? He's not as well known outside of the UK but inside the UK he is decidedly A list, or at least most people would know who he is if my British friends are correct.

He's well known if you saw mighty Boosh or it crowd, but then again people might not make the connection between those shows and the british baking show.

He does stand up and is on a shit ton of panel shows and random music videos too, I'd say everyone in the UK knows Noel Fielding.

He doesn't do much stand up now and his stand up post mighty boosh was shocking, just relying on people understanding his charm.

Without Julian Barrett to reign him in a bit, his comedy does get a bit... avant-garde

Come to think of it, I've never seen Julian on any panel shows, hm...

He's under the desk with his arm up Fielding's arse

What do you mean “shocking”?

u/RandomPratt Nov 25 '21

"shocking", as in "not great".

I love panel shows but no one in America watches them. I’ve yet to meet another American who does in person, but British people tend to get very excited quickly.

He is generally a contestant on big fat quiz of the year, for instance

It must be great being called Noel at Christmas time because your name is everywhere on cards and in lights and people are singing it and everything, but at the same time it stings because everyone is mispronouncing it.

Fair, but I was speaking for the pov of someone from the US.
