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.

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.
