I am a huge fan of The Mighty Boosh (“the funniest comedy double-act in Britain” - NME) and have been known to say quite loudly on occasion that it is the most creative and imaginative show that we have had on British TV for a long time. The talent behind it magicking a surreal and mind bending fantasy world akin to a holiday in Wonderland with the viewer in Alice's seat this time. It would seem that much surreality seen over the last couple of years has had a shot of Noel Fielding madcapness poured into it.
Whom can have watched the more recent series of Never Mind the Buzzcocks and not marvelled at Noel Fielding's presence of mind and cool delivery of hilarious observations? With that in mind Noel Fielding has taken his act on the road with his An Evening With Noel Fielding Tour and it was recently announced that Fielding's Autumn tour has been extended into Jan/Feb 2015 with an additional show at the O2 Academy Brixton this December 9.
Further below is a rather
long winded slightly detailed but much deserved Noel Fielding resume (that I presume only the most ardent fans will take the time to read) if so - rather just take note of the line below that I lifted from the text and book a ticket(s) for what is sure to be an evening of hilarious lunacy near you and watch the clips below to remind yourself of the genius of Noel Fielding.
You'd be a fool to miss out, come along, bring your Nan, fancy dress optional." - as said by the person who wrote this.
AN EVENING WITH NOEL FIELDING
Tour Extends into February 2015
NOEL FIELDING, star of multi-award winning comedy duo The Mighty Boosh, has today announced his first solo live tour in five years, AN EVENING WITH NOEL FIELDING. Kicking off in Guildford on Mon 20th October 2014, the tour takes in some twenty plus dates around the country before culminating in Dublin on Thu 11th December 2014.

Expect a magical mix of Noel's unique brand of stand up comedy, live animation, music and some of Fielding's best-known TV characters (such as The Moon and Fantasy Man). There will also be muscular support from the loose stylings of Mike Fielding (Naboo / Smooth) and the physical lunacy of Tom Meeten (The Mighty Boosh / Oram & Meeten).
You'd be a fool to miss out, come along, bring your Nan, fancy dress optional.
Despite his huge success as one half of The Mighty Boosh, “the funniest comedy double-act in Britain,” (NME) Noel has continually worked on his solo projects. In January 2012 the first series of his kaleidoscopic character comedy show Noel Fielding’s Luxury Comedy aired on E4. Half live action, half animated, the series introduced us to some brand new characters including, among others, New York cop Sergeant Raymond Boombox, modern day ‘Don Quixote’ Fantasy Man and Roy Circles, an anthropomorphic chocolate finger with shell shock. Described by The Independent as “inescapably whimsical,” and by The Guardian as “a neo-psychedelic riot of mirth,” the show starred a number of Mighty Boosh regulars and included music by Kasabian’s Sergio Pizzorno. A second series was soon commissioned and having now been completed, will air on E4 later this year.
Noel’s film credits include the BAFTA nominated short, Sweet, the debut feature from Mighty Boosh director Paul King, Bunny and The Bull and Horrid Henry: The Movie.
In 2002 Noel took his debut solo show, Voodoo Hedgehog, to the Edinburgh Festival. The show earned him a nomination for the prestigious Perrier Award and won him The Time Out Award for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy. He went on to perform the show at The Melbourne International Comedy Festival the following spring. A long running supporter of the charity, Noel has performed at numerous benefit shows in aid of The Teenage Cancer Trust.
Noel has held two exhibitions of his artwork, Psychedelic Dreams of the Jelly Fox and Bryan Ferry vs. the Jelly Fox at Maison Bertaux in Soho. In 2011 he released Scribblings of a Madcap Shambleton, an artbook of old and new paintings, drawings and photography, which he produced with Dave Brown.
It was back in the late 90’s when, alongside Julian Barratt, Noel brought to life Howard Moon and Vince Noir in the upstairs room of a North London pub. The Mighty Boosh made their Edinburgh Festival debut in 1998 winning the coveted Perrier Award for Best Newcomer. Further Edinburgh live shows followed with the Perrier Award nominated Arctic Boosh (1999) and Auto Boosh (2000) which, following a sell out run at The Melbourne International Comedy Festival, won the Festival’s prestigious Barry Humphries Award.
In 2001 the duo were commissioned by the BBC to write and star in The Boosh, a six part comedy series for Radio 4, which went on to win The Douglas Adams Award for innovative comedy writing. The first television series of The Mighty Boosh aired on BBC THREE in May 2004, moving to BBC2 in the November. Bringing the magical exploits of Vince and Howard into the living rooms of everyday folk, the series was nominated for Best Comedy Newcomer at the 2004 British Comedy Awards and was instantly re-commissioned by the BBC for a second series.
In autumn 2006, The Mighty Boosh performed at the prestigious Secret Policeman’s Ball at the Royal Albert Hall, a show that was subsequently aired on C4. This was followed by the eagerly awaited third series of The Mighty Boosh, which aired on BBC THREE at the end of 2007 and earned the duo the Royal Television Society Award for Best Comedy.
At the end of 2008 the duo embarked on their second live tour of the UK, Future Sailors. The massive arena tour, which took the boys through to 2009, took in over 100 shows, including two night’s at London’s O2 Arena, and saw the Boosh perform to over a quarter of a million eager fans.
Last year saw the boys reunite for the first time since their Future Sailors tour for a performance at Tenacious D’s Festival Supreme in Santa Monica, California.
