He is very much the modern day OscarWilde (though he's English) and is generally considered a British national treasure.

He's produced and [[CozyVoiceForCatastrophes hosted]] three very personal documentaries, ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4NuxGgUQfA HIV and Me]],'' ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQkE56eFyk4 The Secret Life of the Manic-Depressive]]'', and ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKPlMjpxqIk Wagner & Me]]'' which concern the result of the aforementioned disappearance to Belgium, eventual diagnosis of bipolar disorder and his difficulties dealing with being a Jew who lost family in the Holocaust and a fan of Richard Wagner, a notorious anti-semite who inspired Hitler. [[note]]all links to trailers[[/note]] He was scheduled to write an episode of ''Series/DoctorWho'', but the idea fell through due to time constraints on his part, though he ended up married to the Doctor. (Or so the Doctor claims)

* HeyItsThatVoice: His voice is immediately recognizable, no less because he's done voice work (usually narration, although he has played Reaver and the Cheshire Cat in ''VideoGame/FableII'' and ''Film/AliceInWonderland'' at least) for a phenomenal number of things.

* MundaneMadeAwesome: He sometimes does this in his writing, usually through DescriptionPorn. For instance, in ''The Fry Chronicles'', he devotes the better part of three pages to the preparation, lighting, and use of a DistinguishedGentlemansPipe.

He has featured on ''TopGear'' as the "Star in a Reasonably Priced Car", having lost about seven stone before the episode, as he went on a diet, prompting Jeremy Clarkson to ask where the rest of him was.

A Cambridge graduate and a personal friend of Creator/JKRowling (he won a Talkie for his reading of the Literature/HarryPotter unabridged audio-books), he has appeared as [[GenerationXerox several Melchettes]] in ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'', played Jeeves in ''Series/JeevesAndWooster'', portrayed OscarWilde in ''{{Film/Wilde}}'', and starred as Fry in ''Series/ABitOfFryAndLaurie''. His reading of the Literature/HarryPotter audiobooks is a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for his acting abilities. Not only is his voice acting superb, the sheer breadth and convincingness of the accents he puts on for the various characters is stunning. Excellent accents are a particular quality of his.

He also played Mycroft Holmes (Sherlock's older, cleverer, but [[GentlemanSnarker indolent]] brother) in Guy Ritchie's ''[[Film/SherlockHolmes Sherlock Holmes]]'' sequel. This was something of a PromotedFanboy moment for him, as he says in his autobiography ''Moab Is My Washpot'' that he's been a fan of ''Sherlock Holmes'' since he was a small boy.
