Noel Fielding Interview Part 5: The Mighty Boosh

Two weeks ago we brought you Part 4 of our exclusive interview with Noel Fielding, in which he answered your questions about Luxury Comedy. This week Noel talks about The Mighty Boosh, a topic very dear to many people’s hearts (if the recent social media furore around the team’s reformation for Festival Supreme is any indication!).

Please accept our apologies that this one has been a wee while coming. We hope that the end result was worth the wait, and that we’ve been able to provide you with an angle on The Boosh story which we don’t ususally get to hear about in interviews; anyway, we’ll let you be the judge of that!

This marks the end of our series of interviews with Noel; we hope you’ve enjoyed watching them (feel free to let us know what you think in the comments box below). Thanks to all of you who sent in questions in the first place, and thanks for subsequently commenting, capping and giffing (is that a word?) the hell out of our little films across tumblr, twitter and the like. Fieldmice, we salute you!

Of course, the biggest thanks goes to Noel for allowing us to badger him with questions, and for his amazing energy, patience and downright loveliness throughout the project.  Thank you, Noel – you’ve been brilliant!

If you’ve missed any of the previous instalments, here are the links in easy-to-click-on format: Teaser; Part 1 (Turning 40); Part 2 (Random questions); Part 3 (Random questions); Part 4 (Luxury Comedy). Enjoy!

  1. Love this, it ends the interview nicely and It’s so nice to hear Noel talk about the Boosh again, and say how he misses it in a way. Such a genuinely lovely guy, he deserves hugs from the entire world.<3


    • Love the interview, all parts! He’s right about how crazy things got when the Boosh hit stardom. I like how Noel remains friends with creative people. He never gets bored that way.


  2. thank you 🙂


  3. Thank you Velvet Onion and Noel for this amazing series of interviews.


  4. Such fun! I love the picture of Noel & Julian in drag…….. Thanks Mog & the Velvet Onion.


  5. I loved this guys. I think this was my favourite little segment of the orange! It bought back memories of the Boosh – I still remember tuning into that little show and being totally fascinated by it. It was a one off and I think in time, will become a comedy classic. I don’t think it will be forgotten and I think generations to come will feel the same about this weird, quirky little show.that somehow is inclusive and exclusive at the same time. It’s good that Noel is doing his own thing now and time and art has to move on – but I still the chemistry of Fielding and Barrett was a truly special thing. Thank you so much TVO!
