His own series Noel Fielding’s Luxury Comedy and the follow-up Luxury Comedy: Tales From Painted Hawaii were broadcast on E4.
He has appeared in various guises on shows such as Garth Marenghi’s Dark Place, The IT Crowd, and How Not To Live Your Life, and as a team captain on Never Mind The Buzzcocks.
Explaining their hiatus after the show finished with its final arena tour in 2009, he said: "I had kids. And I was going, 'Yeah, this is really good.’ Well I it was good, but I sort of didn’t know why it was good, in a way.
We wanted to do other things on our own, so that’s what we’ve done. So I was talking to Noel about that," he explained. And there seems to be people wanting us to do that, so that’s what that was.
It’s hard to imagine Peter Kay, John Bishop, Michael Mc Intyre — or any other super-rich stand-up currently creaming a cool £20m per tour (including DVDs, merchandise and spin-offs) for their man-of-the-people schtick — slipping so effortlessly on to such stages.
