Speaking to the Standard Online about taking to the stage he said: “It’s important to get nervous. There are 2000 people out there and they’ve paid money. “I thought I’d do something really vague and old fashioned,” he said.If you think about it too much you probably wouldn’t be able to go on. “There is something quite perverse about An Evening with Noel Fielding – there’s An Evening with Spike Milligan, An Evening with Dudley Moore.Noel Fielding has built up a cult following as one half of The Mighty Boosh, appeared on countless panel shows and performed with Kasabian at Glastonbury Festival – but the comedian has revealed he still gets nervous “every time” he gets on stage.The comedian, 42, is preparing to head to the US and Canada with his An Evening with Noel Fielding tour, which sees him mix stand-up with animation and the Boosh's Mr Fantasy Man, the Moon and his understudy ‘Antonio Banderas’ (Tom Meeten). It’s a 40-year panic attack.” Unlike the Mighty Boosh and Luxury Comedy, Fielding said he was keen to find a “retro vibe” for his latest tour title.
Fielding, 41, stands at the far side of the room, staring intently at white cards stuck on the wall bearing hastily scrawled phrases such as ‘Jelly Fox’.Fielding met Barratt when he was performing a gig - and Julian offered Noel a place to perform.His character; "King of the Mods", "Goth Fairy", "Electro Poof", "Shoreditch Vampire" and "Camden Leisure Pirate", as well as fashion icon and would-be musician ("Vince Noir - rock 'n' roll star!That's not my zone.” Noel Fielding's zone, as most people know by now, is surreal, funny, psychedelic and a little bit rock'n'roll.(The day after we meet, he interviews Ronnie Wood in Waterstone's about his new book and posts a picture online; they look like father and son – all angles and bouffant hair.) He attained cult comedy status as one half of the Mighty Boosh and mainstream fame on Never Mind the Buzzcocks.
