Rich Fulcher graduated from Dartmouth with a degree in law, so it was only natural that he would go into sketch comedy. He started in Chicago, where he shared the Second City improv stage with Tina Fey. But he fell in love with the festival circuit and met his future comedy partners, Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding, at The Fringe in Edinburgh. His style on stage and in sketch was embraced in England, which suited Rich, a huge Monty Python fan, just fine.
He gained a cult following as a member of 'The Mighty Boosh' comedy troupe, and authored a book, 'Tiny Acts of Rebellion', which became a successful stage show.
His genre-bending sitcom-sketch series 'Snuff Box' was a hit in the UK, and became a You Tube favourite. It's been described as the greatest sketch comedy show you've never heard of; it likely won't stay that way for long. The 'Snuff Box' DVD set hits shelves in Canada next week, which means Rich Fulcher might be spending a whole lot more time on this side of the pond.
