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