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, coming to The Auditorium at Echo Arena Liverpool on Friday 7 November 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).
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.
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 showat 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 art. You’d be a fool to miss out, come along, bring your Nan, fancy dress optional.
Tickets are on sale Friday 7th March at 9am
