ONLY Noel Fielding has the ability to produce a show that lasts over two hours and boasts a talking moon, a pantomime in playdoh and a whole host of strange, eccentric characters that leave you feeling like a little child again.

But what else would you expect from the man who helped create the wacky, hit comedy TV series The Mighty Boosh.

Those in attendance knew what to expect and the hugely likeable character did not disappoint.

The first part of the show sees Fielding attempt to perform stand up comedy, but this was never simply going to be about a comedian telling jokes.

His ability to go completely off tangent and discuss the most unlikely scenarios while still engaging with an audience made up of people of all ages was a joy to watch.

It is difficult to describe the content without sounding completely insane myself but a slight indication would be a mad mix of crazy chicken dancing combined with details of a ludicrous affair between his fake wife and a triangle!

He could well have ended it there. But unlike most other ‘normal’ comedians, you get the feeling that Fielding is not in it for the money. Quite the opposite in fact. He wants to put on a performance for his loyal army of fans.

His show is full of energy, humour and crazy antics but it really begins to take off after the interval when Fielding takes us on a bizarre journey in the form of a pantomime which he revealed took ten months to write.

We are reacquainted with several characters created by the comedian including the ever popular ‘Fantasy Man’ and New York cop Raymond Boombox.

In his role as Raymond, Fielding took to the crowd and what followed was brief chance for Fielding to meet some of his fans and allow them to become even more involved, which was a nice touch.

Throughout his show Fielding constantly refers the audience back to his age (41) as a reminder to us all that despite our age we can still enjoy what can only be described at times as complete madness.

Throw in for good measure guest appearances from his brother Michael, a ‘minotaurs’ or two and Andy Murray of all people and you have the ingredients for a thoroughly enjoyable evening which will take on a journey to a weird yet wonderful world only Fielding could create.
