Some call me Ol Greg the funky Merman , others know me as Richmond the Goth from IT Crowd. Some people cannot see me at all. These people are foolish ! For I come bearing gifts from another dimension ( shoes covered in glitter and ham )

I am Here to answer your questions keep it real moon children and lets dance. X
*Start time 1 PM PST / 4 PM EST
Hi Noel, just seen from Instagram that you'd be here 😊 If you could choose anybody to be your partner for the Big Fat Quiz who would you pick?
Joan Jett or Cardinal Wolsey
NOEL! You have quite a remarkable style. What is your favorite outfit that you've ever worn? Also- what would you consider a 'must have item' in any wardrobe?
XOXO I'm a huge fan.
The glitter ball onesie is hard to beat. Boots are a definite must for a good wardrobe. If you have good boots your half way there to being stylish.
have you ever drunk baileys from a shoe?
yes, if course I have! I'm Ol Greg. Motherlicker I go to clubs where people wee on each other.
Hello, Noel! I know you've made changes to the tour when taking it to Australia and New Zealand. Are you planning to make any tweaks to the tour for American audiences?
I don't like to tailor my material to the audience so definitely not! Actually the show might have a slightly different cast. I'll keep you posted. I'm hoping Kirk Douglas might be in the show but I don't have his phone number or any way of reaching him. But if he's on this AMA could you please get in touch.
If you could collide two projects that you've worked on together into one massive project, what would you do? <3
Personally, a Mighty Big Fat Boosh of the Year would be lovely.
A Mighty Boosh Garth Marenghi's Darkplace mashup would be good. Their show is set in a haunted hospital and our show is set in a zoo so maybe for this it could be set in a haunted animal hospital. Or maybe it could be a musical.
Hi Noel, how do you feel about being both a style icon but also a role-model for a lot of young people? What do you want to pass on to "the younger generation"?
That's very kind, I'm not sure I'm a style icon. I'm very bold in my style but I do make mistakes. I think that's part of the fun.
Part 2 - That it's ok to be androgynous. For a boy is to wear make up, for men to wear dresses and to generally cover everything in glitter.
I've never been to the US of A before. What's it like compared to the UK? Experiencing any sort of culture shock there?
Also, I'm a big fan, & you're awesome.
I could spend all day talking about this. But I've got to go drink Bailey's from a shoe. What I'll say is... despite Donald Trump, Americans seem quite lovely. [Although they cannot make tea, and I've had so much coffee since I've been here, I'm basically turning into the Henry The Human Fly]
Can i join your coven of witches and warlocks?
I don't think you'd pass the initiation ceremony.
I know Florida is not on your tour, but any chance you may pop in to see us down here at some point?
Incentive: I can get you into theme parks for free.
Where in Florida are you? I would love to play everywhere in America and hopefully I'll reach you all eventually. If I can't play where you live on this tour I'll make sure that I come down your chimney like a gothic Santa in the middle of the night and spoon you like a creepy half man half tarantula.
Hello Noel... Do you have any more tv shows up your sleeves? What's next on the horizon when the tour is finished? love you a little bit BTW
I've got tons of things up my silky sleeves. Just trying to work out which way to jump. Hopefully the next thing that I do will be some kind of underwater sitcom watched only by newts and salamanders. Don't freak out. Humans will still be able to stream it but will half have to wait for permission from the amphibians who've paid big money for exclusive rights to everything I produce in the next 27 years. It's about time that people who can breath under water and on land get access to my work first.
Hey Noel, huge fan! What's the difference you feel touring in the States and touring in the UK? Cheers!
No idea, i haven't done it yet. I'll tell you after the tour finishes once I've been deported.
I’m American and you’re my absolute favorite comedian as well as Jimmy Fallon, so it made me so happy to see you on his show. What kind of banter do you guys have? Which British tv host/comedian would you say he’s most similar to disposition/temperament wise? Who’s your favorite American comedian? Love you (more than) a little bit and can’t wait to see you when you tour America.
Jimmy Fallon is an amazing man. Half Buster Keaton half tabby cat. There's no one like him in England. My favorite american comedians are Mitch Hedberg, Richard Pryor, Steve Martin, Emo Philips, Steven Wright, Cheech and Chong, Ernie Kovacs, Firesign Theatre and Robin Williams and Bobcat Goldthwait and the people who make Wonder Showzen on adult swim and Xavier: Renegade Angel. But my favorite American comedian is Rich Fulcher. I've probably left loads of people out but those are the ones off the top of my head. Ohhh and I love Woody Allen. Also Sarah Silverman, Dolly Wells and Bill Hicks, John Belushi... and of course Terry Gilliam... oh shit Dolly Wells is English but leave her in there.
