I’M A huge fan of the Mighty Boosh – the dynamic between Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding made them into one of the most popular double acts of the past few years.
So I was slightly concerned when I heard Noel Fielding was embarking on a solo tour, his first in five years.
However, there really was no need.
While the show started out in much the same way as any other stand-up gig, it was when the true whimsical nature of Fielding’s mind came into play that the show really came alive.
What followed was two hours ranging from the random stories about teabags and milk to the downright absurd chicken man.
But regardless how far down the rabbit hole that is Fielding’s mind the show went, his combination of experience (he’s 42 you know!) and natural talent kept the audience on side.
His fantastic use of characters and animation made this a show the sell-out Music Hall crowd will not forget. The moments of improvisation when the pre-planned material broke down were the true highlight.
