Barratt says he and Fielding are back working together, seven years after The Boosh went on hiatus.
'Mighty Boosh' star Julian Barratt has said he and comedy partner Noel Fielding are currently working on a new project together. Barratt, who returns to TV later this month in Channel 4’s ‘Flowers’, said that the pair had stayed friends since The Boosh went on hiatus, but now they're back to writing together.
Julian Barratt has said he’s working on new ideas with Noel Fielding.
Speaking to The Radio Times, Barratt said: “We’re talking about doing something else together now… something with a longer arc really.” The comedian then went on to explain why 'The Boosh' went on hiatus, following their 2009 arena tour.
Rhod Gilbert had become the show’s new host last September.
The BBC has cancelled long running music panel show ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’ after over 18 years on air and 28 series. The show had long been a staple of BBC Two’s autumn schedule, but had suffered from falling ratings in recent years.

Last summer, in time for Buzzcocks' 28th series, comedian Rhod Gilbert was named as the show's first permanent host in five years. But the addition of Gilbert was unable to improve ratings, which had been steadily declining for some time.

Noel Fielding - The EE British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) 2015 Official After Party held at the Grosvenor House hotel - Arrivals at Grosvenor House - London, United Kingdom - Sunday 8th February 2015
In 'The Mighty Boosh', Noel Fielding took us on a journey through time and space. In 'Luxury Comedy' he invited us to visit Painted Hawaii. But in 'An Evening With Noel Fielding' the comedian took the audience on their greatest adventure yet, through the many twists and turns of his vast imagination.
The evening began as ordinarily as possible for Fielding. He was quick to point out that he's now aged 41 (though he could probably still pass for under 30) and so finds himself walking like Prince Charles with his hands behind his back. But of course, that's where the similarities end.
At 41, Fielding is still as enchanting as ever and holds the same childlike charm which first made him a star in 'The Mighty Boosh'. One joke saw him vividly describe the life of a teabag, complete with 'Dante's Inferno' references, while in another he was simply a 'chicken man' who squawked around the stage amusing himself just as much as everybody else.
Luxury Comedy is back and this time it’s even better.
Noel Fielding is back on E4 tonight (July 31st) bringing the second series of his ‘Luxury Comedy’ with ‘Tales from Painted Hawaii’. One half of The Mighty Boosh and Never Mind the Buzzcock’s team captain, Noel has never been one to go for the conventional laugh as 'Luxury Comedy’s' first series proved. But this time around he’s found a different way to present the weirdness and thankfully the results are just as hilarious.

When ‘Luxury Comedy’ debuted on E4 in 2012 the reaction from viewers and critics was mixed. Some just really didn't get Fielding’s eccentric mix of characters and off-beat jokes, while others simply dismayed that “it wasn't the Mighty Boosh!”, as if it had ever intended to be. But for those who did appreciate Fielding’s first solo effort, a whole new world full of colours and characters had been opened up to them, just like in Mighty Boosh’s earliest days.
Rhod Gilbert is the new permanent host of Never Mind the Buzzcocks, the show's first permanent presented in five years since Simon Amstell left the BBC2 show.
Rhod Gilbert has been named as the permanent host of comedy panel show Never Mind the Buzzcocks. The BBC2 show has lacked a permanent presenter since 2009 when Simon Amstell departed so he could work on his own comedy tours and performances.

The rockers - who had the honour of closing this year's Glastonbury festival on sunday night (29.06.14) - are set to embark on an arena tour of the UK and Ireland this November - including a five-night stint at the O2 Brixton academy.
The tour is sure to be a hit after the four-piece band secured their fourth consecutive number one album '48.13' this year and played a homecoming show at Leicester's Victoria Park to a crowd of 50,000 fans.

Fielding pays tribute to the late comedian in this week's NME
Noel Fielding is the latest comedian to pay tribute to the late Rik Mayall, who died suddenly on June 9 after “an acute cardiac event” following a morning run. The Mighty Boosh star details how Mayall’s The Young Ones influenced his own his comedy, which enjoyed three series on The BBC and a popular live show.

Writing in The NME, Fielding notes that The Young Ones was “the first post-punk comedy, and a complete changing of the guard. The Young Ones was a huge influence on The Mighty Boosh, for both Julian [Barratt] and myself."

We'll always remember the 'IT Crowd' even if its left our screens for good
In 2006 'The I.T Crowd' welcomed us into the basement of Reynholm Industries to meet Moss, Roy and Jen and make sure we’d ‘tried switching it on and off again' first. The successful Channel 4 comedy brought us four series of laughs and ridiculous scenarios before bidding us goodbye with a special episode late last year. Entitled, ‘The Internet Is Coming’, its just picked up four BAFTA nominations, including one for best sitcom, giving a fitting tribute to one of the decades funniest and unique sitcoms.
Richard Ayoade played Maurice Moss in the 'IT Crowd'
Created by Graham Linehan, one half of the duo that gave us 'Father Ted', the 'IT Crowd' delved in to the world of computer nerdom, celebrating it in a way that British television had never seen before. Set in the IT department of Reynholm Industries, confined to the building’s basement, Jen, played by Katherine Parkinson served as our guide into the world of computers and the internet, even though she didn't know what IT stood for. Jen was faced with the role of being relationship manager to Moss and Roy, the socially inept IT technicians who would fix any computer problem in their own time and if they could be bothered. The two best friends, played by Richard Ayoade and Chris O’Dowd were bonded together by their love of computer games and all things geeky and also the fact that no one else could really put up with them.

Mighty Boosh comedian is going out on his own for a solo tour
‘Mighty Boosh’ star Noel Fielding has just announced his UK tour to take place later this year. The comedian will be taking ‘An Audience with Noel Fielding’ up and down the country between October and December, bringing along some very funny friends and well known characters. The 23 date tour marks a massive return to standup for the comedian who’s best known for his TV work, but what has he been up to since the hiatus of the ‘Mighty Boosh’ and what can we expect from his solo shows?
Have 'An Evening With Noel Fielding' later this year
After the ‘Mighty Boosh’ wrapped up their ‘Future Sailors’ tour in 2009 the pair decided to take a little time off from their famous double act. After all, they’d been doing it for over 10 years at that point. Noel, however stayed on TV and filled Bill Bailey’s vacant seat as a permanent team captain on BBC 2’s ‘Nevermind the Buzzcocks’. He also appeared in films such as ‘Come on Eileen’ and ‘Horrid Henry the Movie’. Then in November 2011 he went back to his other main passion besides comedy, art, and released his book ‘The Scribblings of a Madcap Shambleton’ featuring his own unique art work of portraits, characters and even some stories to go along with them. The book’s promotion saw Fielding travel to Manchester, Glasgow and London demonstrating his painting skills on the windows of Waterstones, Urban Outfitters and in London’s Golden Square.

A little help from my friends: Beck performs his latest 'Song Reader' album during an evening that saw performances from Franz Ferdinand, Jarvis Cocker, The Mighty Boosh, Beth Orton and Charlotte Gainsbourg.
Depending on the way you look at it, Beck's decision to release his last album in the form of sheet music was either incredibly innovative or unforgivably pretentious. Released in December 2012, Song Reader comprised of twenty songs in sheet music form as well as over one hundred pages of art. The idea behind the unusual decision was to let the fan become the composer, with many interpretations quickly surfacing online showing the versatility of the pieces.
Prolific Experimentalist Beck Invited A Host Of Artists To Help Him Perform Song Reader live.
This was all very well if you're a Beck fan with some degree of musical talent but for those hungering for the white rap of Odelay, the pop experimentation of Midnite Vultures or the sweet melancholy of Sea Change were left feeling a little bemused and perhaps even cheated.
