Noel Fielding Review
Written by Jo Forrest

I have to admit I approached Friday, 7 November 2014, nights performance with Noel Fielding with an open mind. The star of The Mighty Boosh, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and more recently Noel Fielding's Luxury Comedy TV series did not disappoint.

The evening started with The Moon, a character from The Mighty Boosh, introducing Noel, the Peter Pan of comedy who swept onto the stage in a full length sparkling silver cape. The quirky comedian talked about getting older and his pervious jobs of which there were only 2 and the longest one he had lasted 90mins.

The 1st part of the show is mainly stand up and here Noel did not disappoint, very funny man with lots of audience interaction. He talked about a dream he had in which he was a teabag and encounter in Costa Rica with a monkey, his fictitious wife who had an affair with a triangle, he then finally moves into a crazy routine about Chicken Man, which sees him clucking and strutting around the stage like a rather bizarre Mick Jagger. The audience was very amused by it, even if I was left a little baffled by the whole routine.

The 2nd half of the evening focuses on the kidnapping of Noel and the quest to find him and ultimately rescue him from a 2D plasticine world. In this part of the show, Noel plays a character called Raymond Boombox and wanders around the audience, looking for suspects to question about the disappearance, they were filmed, but Noels brother Michael Fielding who played Hawkman. It was great to see the characters entering and leaving the 2D plasticine world, which starred Joey Ramone, a minator and a bald David Bowie, was brilliant they way they.

As well as his brother we had Tom Meeten to aid and abet the mad comedy antics though out the evening. There were also regular appearances from 'The Moon' and his alter ego 'The Dark Side of the Moon.' It was never going to be your normal run of the mill stand up routine that you get with other comedians, for almost 2 hours you are sucked into Noels crazy,
weird world. There was a lot of audience interaction and involvement, some of whom had made the effort to dress up as some of Noels more well known characters. And whilst it would be easy to point to individual moments here that don’t quite work, the childishly playful spirit conquers all. And every so often the disparate, odd elements combine to the perfect storm of brilliant hilarity.

Appeal for witnesses after an assault and attempted robbery in Kirby

MERSEYSIDE Police Detectives in Knowsley are appealing for witnesses following an assault and attempted robbery on a man
in Kirby on Thursday, 6 November 2014. Officers were called around 10.15 pm by the North West Regional Ambulance Service reporting that a man had been assaulted. The 45 year old man was on his way home, walking down a path in Valley Park towards James Holt Avenue, when he passed 3 men. He continued to walk down the path when he was pushed by one of the men and then punched and kicked in the head. They went through his pockets, but found nothing and walked off leaving the
victim on the ground. The victim managed to call an ambulance and walk to James Holt Avenue, where the ambulance picked him up and took him to hospital for treatment for his injuries. He sustained cuts to his face and bruised ribs and was released from hospital later that evening. Anyone who witnessed what happened or has any information is asked to contact the Police on:- 101 or call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on:- 0800 555 111.
