Noel Fielding (1973) is a British comedian. He is best known for his role in the British sitcom "The Mighty Boosh".

He named Zappa and Captain Beefheart as one of his inspirations. [1]

On November 5-7, 2010, Fielding and his comedy act, The Mighty Boosh Band, performed a Zappa tribute at Rounding House, Great Britain, during the Zappa Plays Zappa tour in collaboration with Dweezil Zappa. Fielding once described The Mighty Boosh Band as comedy for people who grew up listening to Frank Zappa. ([2]). His comedy partner, Julian Barratt is a Zappa fan as well. Both Fielding and Barratt's fathers introduced Zappa to their sons.

Fielding is also active as a painter and featured Zappa's image a few times in his work. On May 12, 2013 he was officially hired by the Zappa Family Trust to paint the cover of a 12″ 45rpm (red vinyl) re-release of Help, I'm A Rock & Who Are The Brain Police?. [3]

Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt are also mentioned and thanked in the liner notes of The MOFO Project/Object (2006) album. [4]
