Julian Barratt

After coming to prominence playing straight man Howard Moon on the Mighty Boosh, Julian Barratt has become a skilled director.

Along with writing sketch comedy, he creates music videos and short films in his own darkly humorous style. For example his film for the ABCs of Death 2, B is for Badger, which sees him both in front of and behind the camera.

"You Can't Handcuff The Wind"
Julian Barratt - The Mighty Boosh; Flowers - stars in a new spoof movie about washed-up actor Richard Thorncroft who is unexpectedly thrust back into the limelight. And just to prime us, an old music video has surfaced of Thorncroft singing a soft-rock ballad from his heyday. 'You Can't Handcuff The Wind' is a glorious paean to that decade's more dubious musical trends, and its accompanying promo brings a barrel of cheese to the party.
