TX: Thursday 26th January, 10pm, on E4
Noel Fielding - co-creator of The Mighty Boosh - brings his own psychedelic brand of comedy to E4 this year.
Noel Fielding's Luxury Comedy is a 7-part comedy show quite unlike anything else on television - a fusion of live action and animation, with music by Kasabian's Sergio Pizzorno.
Along with animator/director Nigel Coan (The Mighty Boosh, Bunny and the Bull), Fielding has created a joyful, charming explosion of a TV show that is in the tradition of Spike Milligan and Kenny Everett.
In Luxury Comedy Noel lives in a jungle tree house with his anteater butler (Mike Fielding), Andy Warhol his cleaner (Tom Meeten), and German trendy Dolly (Dolly Wells).
Among other characters that feature throughout the series are: Tony Reason, a manta ray music producer who lives in a fish tank under the tree house; Roy Circles, a games teacher suffering from severe shell shock who's also a chocolate finger; Sgt Raymond Boombox, a food loving New York Cop with a knife wound on his arm that talks to him and helps him solve his cases; and Fantasy Man, a kind of Don Quixote trapped inside an electronic opera.
Noel Fielding's Luxury Comedy is heavily influenced by the worlds of art and music. It's smart, ambitious, like Salvador Dali and Mick Jagger recreating The Jungle Book.
Warm and strange and packed with jokes, Luxury Comedy will change the way you feel about television and your own hands forever.
