It's like a kid's show, for adults.

Be warned: if you put on Luxury Comedy expecting The Boosh--or any other comedy, for that matter, you're going to come away sorely disappointed. But if you approach it with an open mind and allow yourself to take the ride, prepare to have your mind blown!
Even Luxury's most foresworn haters have to agree that there's nothing compromising, phony, or commercial about Fielding's solo project: it's a work of art in the literal sense of the word. It does some serious envelope-pushing on the surrealism: obviously, it's not everybody's cup of tea. Some of the more outlandish bits include an evil clown who lives in the sky and produces mash-potato guns from a gear-box in his stomach, a cheese-faced man who sings (in jibberish) about his unrequited love with a piece of toast, and more still that defy a simple summary. But even beyond just the "wtf" reaction, the show holds it's own with stunning child-like visuals, and yes, plenty of quirky fieldingisms. (One of my favorite bits is "Fantasy Man," about a man suffering a psychological break-down and hallucinates being a medieval fantasy hero--at society's expense.)
