Noel Fielding’s Luxury Comedy

The glam-rock goth half of comedy duo The Mighty Boosh has a new sketch show. some of it is animated. Serge from Kasabian’s done the music. one of the characters is a chocolate finger. we’ll let him take it from here...

“Basically, I live in a treehouse and a robotic Andy Warhol [played by Boosh alumni Steve Oram] is my cleaner, and I’ve got a butler who is an anteater, played by my brother [Michael Fielding, Naboo in The Mighty Boosh]. I play myself, but a psychedelic version. I look a bit like I’m in Kiss, or some weird Sixties band. And my treehouse is in the middle of a sort of painted, Henri Rousseau kind of jungle. Yeah?

“There’s this manta ray who’s a music producer called Tony Reason, and he’s produced loads of bands, a bit like George Martin. He’s well calm, and just talks about all the bands he’s produced. And he’s got a friend called Todd Michael who’s like a music producer from the Eighties. He’s a hammerhead shark [played by Richard Ayoade], and he’s really brash and a bit cocainey. He made a load of money, but it was off really crap acts. Him and Tony are always arguing — they’re like an aquatic Derek and Clive.And there’s Fantasy Man — he’s like Don Quixote, but if he was in Tron. So, Tron Quixote, if anything.

“And there’s a schizophrenic flag called Bobatron [played by comedian Kim Noble], who guards a bridge in the internet between YouTube and YouPorn. There’s a super-trendy German guy who lives next door, called Dolly. And a chocolate finger who’s a games teacher called Roy Circle, except he’s got shell shock because he used to be in the army.

“It’s hard doing a show without Julian [Barratt]. He’s like a big ox, carrying the show behind him, and I just sort of fly around him like a sort of fairy, dipping in and out at will. Now
I’m carrying the harness! A fairy carrying the harness! Imagine that.”

Noel Fielding’s Luxury Comedy, tonight at 10pm, C4
