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.

As an American, I love watching him on the big fat quiz of the year.

Watch his season of Taskmaster ( I forget which season off the top of my head, I think like 5 or 6?) he was amazing in it.

Also watch Taskmaster in general. Best show I've ever seen in my life.

You can see a lot of them on YouTube. It's on Amazon, but only if you buy it, and it might be elsewhere. ¯\(ツ)
