Noel Fielding’s Luxury Comedy – The Mighty Douche

February 10, 2012
Noel Fielding started his sketch show career teamed with Julian Barratt in The Mighty Boosh, but now Fielding has taken his career to ‘new’ levels with Noel Fielding’s Luxury Comedy.
From photos and adverts I could see exactly the same strange and decorated humor as was used in The Mighty Boosh. I was never a fan of the show as the jokes used little intelligence but plenty of costumes and ‘child-like’ jokes.
Fielding even explains to the Telegraph (Monahan, 2012) how he is very much like a child, which is shown to be very true in his ‘luxury’ comedy.
Fielding uses a combination of cartooned sets and characters whose noses seem to resemble something phallic, but not laughable.
Bo Selecta’ style voices don’t seem to do any favors to the program either, but simply make it seem more like a surreal nightmare.
With in the first 5 minutes of watching the programme, I was already overwhelmed by the lack of consistency that is ‘humour’.  Characters that excrete rainbow cereal and look like something you dreamt about last night whilst drunk in bed, is not my idea of a laugh-out-loud sketch show.
A few years back, Noel Fielding and Russel Brand formed a team on The Big Fat Quiz of the Year, and succeeded in bringing others and myself into fits of laughter. But despite not lacking in imagination, I am still embarrassed for his sense of humour.
It is a shame to see such creative minds go to waste, as Fielding struck me as potential when he appeared much earlier on as a character on The IT Crowd.
Let’s just say that if this is ‘luxury’ comedy, I would hate to see Fielding’s less ‘luxurious’ ideas.
