WHEN The Great British Bake Off switched to Channel 4, there were concerns it would move downmarket.Fans in love with the knowing wit of Mel and Sue braced themselves for something colder and harder.Does he ever have a dress-down day, slob out a bit? I'm not particularly a slippers and dressing gown type. I don't have a weird tracksuit I put on when I get in…That's not my zone.” Noel Fielding's zone, as most people know by now, is surreal, funny, psychedelic and a little bit rock'n'roll.The London-born star, educated at Croydon School of Art, is best known for the peculiar stage show comedy troupe The Mighty Boosh, which enjoyed three BBC2 series. It seems normal because you think everyone does it. They never said, ‘you’ve got to go to bed or you’ll be tired for school’.
He is close pals with James Browne, 57, once jailed for 18 years for manslaughter during a robbery.He said: “I quite like bacon sandwiches because they’re colourful. But colourful and easy to eat is best.” But drugs soon took over his professional life and he realised if he didn’t get clean his career would be over before it had even begun.It was during a Mighty Boosh live tour in 2006 that he was forced to accept his drug problem.He is a playful polymath, hopping about in his pointy boots from sitcoms to animations to stand-up, acting to art exhibitions. He is about to go on tour for a second UK leg of his solo show, An Evening With Noel Fielding, having already taken it around the UK, Australia and New Zealand. But I suppose I'm in this weird transitional period between having some success doing weird stuff and not being eccentric yet. Fielding, who had been on the show since 2009, found out when the press did. All of a sudden it was just POWWWW and everyone was sick of each other. They were making a lot of money and there were a lot of people with a vested interest in keeping it going.“I start getting bored and misbehaving if I don't work hard. There is more than one moment in the show when he wonders why he's still prancing around pretending to be a chicken boy, or a herbal teabag, or the moon (which he plays, memorably, by covering his face with half a can of shaving foam). “If a show has lasted that long and people like it, why would you get rid of it? People liked it, it wasn't an aggressive male panel show. I never know the thinking behind television.” He is still smarting, too, from his last solo foray on E4, Luxury Comedy. Someone called the show the second 9/11,” he says with a sad little grin. “So we tried to write a film, and it all sort of imploded.” Barratt now has eight-year old twin boys with his partner, the comedian Julia Davis.
