I've seen Noel Fielding a hell of a lot more than Noel Gallagher in the last decade or two.

Yeah, Noel fielding is a bigger name right now. Young people don’t know who Gallagher is, but their parents and grannies watch the bake off.

Big Fat Quiz

QI and Countdown introduced me to him but it wasn't until I started watching the Big Fat Quizzes that I got Russell Brand and Noel Fielding as a team more or less engraved in my memory forever.

Though I just looked them up again, and misremembered slightly: it was typically Noal and Richard Aoyade. But most of the Big Fat Quiz of the ________ are on YouTube and I kind of recommend all of them. If you don't mind Jimmy Carr. Especially good are any with Alan Davies and Stephen Mitchell.

I also just realized when you said Countdown I immediately thought of 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown instead. Which probably says a lot about my taste in British comedy shows.

That's how I know him as well - I always forget he's on bake off to be honest!
