Mowgli in Flares was born in London to a couple of 18 year-old bohemians and studied at Croydon Art College. The glam-rock comedian started doing stand-up in the late 90’s, appearing on Channel 4 stand-up shows looking distinctly less glam than he does today.
He met comedy partner Julian Barratt on the stand-up circuit and through a shared a love of The Goodies, began writing together. The Mighty Boosh was born in 1998. Originally a stage show, they went to the Edinburgh Festival to show it off, winning Perrier Best Edinburgh Newcomers and being spotted by comic genius Steve Coogan. The BBC Three series started in 2004, running until 2007.
Noel’s had guest roles in various pal’s comedy series, including The IT Crowd, Nathan Barley, Harry Hill’s TV Burp and AD/BC: A Rock Opera. Becoming Never Mind the Buzzcocks team captain in 2009, the BBC threatened to sack him for admitting to snorting coke and ketamine, dropping acid and gobbing MDMA. Well, what did they expect, he’s bosom buddies with Courtney Love after all.
Noel’s also held a couple of art exhibitions above a cake shop in Soho and he’s written a comedy show of his own for Channel 4, Noel Fielding: Boopus. Otherwise he just generally hangs out at the trendiest parties in town in glittery boots, playing with his hair.
Noel dated Dee Plume of Robots in Disguise for 9 years until 2009. He’s now seeing XFM DJ Lliana Bird.
