Julian Barratt was born Julian Barratt Pettifer 4 May 1968 in Leeds and is an English comedian, musician, music producer and actor. Barratt is best known for playing the character of Howard Moon in the cult comedy The Mighty Boosh.
Barratt stars as the character Howard Moon opposite Noel Fielding's Vince Noir in the comedy series The Mighty Boosh. Howard labels himself a "jazz maverick" and claims to be an intellectual with many talents, calling himself a 'man of action', but in reality he is unsuccessful in his literary and romantic ventures. He is unpopular with many of the characters, including Mrs. Gideon who always forgets his name, Bob Fossil who often uses Howard as a puppet for his bizarre schemes and Bollo who often says his name wrong or ignores him completely. Also in one episode of the radio series Howard is constantly bothered by the zoo's security guard Graham, who never recognises him and in one scene attacks Howard with an electrical baton, but later in the show Howard gets his revenge. In essence, he is the complete opposite of Vince Noir.
Apart from his work on The Mighty Boosh, Barratt has had parts in other dramas, often alongside Noel Fielding. He co-starred as Dan Ashcroft, a frustrated magazine writer, in the Channel 4 media satire, Nathan Barley. He appeared in the surreal black comedy series Asylum alongside Simon Pegg and Jessica Stevenson (writers and stars of Spaced). The character of Brian Topp in Spaced was written for Barratt but the part eventually went to Mark Heap. Barrett played Jackson, a musician in How not to live your life who was a threat to the Don's (Dan Clark) self esteem. He starred in tn the "Freelance Scientist" commercial for Metz alcopop.

Before this Barratt was involved in TV show The Pod with friend Tim Hope about a fictional techno band called The Pod. The show was unusual as it was animated apart from the heads of Barratt and Hope. Barratt also appeared in the film Lucky Break alongside James Nesbitt in 2001.
Barratt has recently completed his directing debut for Warp films with theatre director Dan Jemmett. Curtains is set in a Norfolk seaside town, it is a dark comedy about a Punch and Judy man.

He has also played with Chris Corner in IAMX. He composes all of the music for The Mighty Boosh. The music included in the series is an eclectic range of genres including rap, heavy metal and psychedelic rock.
Barratt is known to be shy, often quiet and self-deprecating. Unlike his comedy partner Noel Fielding, he prefers not to appear in television comedy quiz shows saying he would 'rather be at home with a book.' He is in a relationship with fellow comedian Julia Davis; the couple have twin boys born in 2007, and live in North London. Barratt adopted his middle name Barratt as his professional last name to distinguish himself from an already well known reporter named Julian Pettifer.
