Characters / Noel Fielding's Luxury Comedy

Go To

     Noel and his friends. 

Noel

The star of the show. An eccentric artist.

  • Adam Westing: Though given that it's Noel Fielding, there's no telling how much is an exaggeration.
  • Amicable Exes: Noel and Dolly used to date. Now, despite their near-constant bickering, they seem to have no problem staying friends.
  • Anything That Moves: Being a talking animal or an object doesn't stop Noel from being attracted to someone.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Noel's feud with King Tutta the mountain has shades of this. Throughout the episode a distant mountain keeps tutting and looking disgusted every time Noel makes a joke. Noel retaliates by scorching the mountain's cheek with a hot teaspoon, but later realises he was actually tutting because he was performing a capella with some other mountains, at which point Noel apologises and admits to being "slightly in love" with King Tutta.
  • Better as Friends: Noel and Dolly have zero sexual tension despite having once dated. Noel gets a bit irritated whenever Dolly mentions men she dated behind Noel's back when they were together, though.
  • Bishie Sparkle: Noel wears glitter on his cheeks throughout the final episode and he's as close to a real life Bishonen as you can get.
  • Bi the Way: Noel the actor is more ambiguous, but the second series has Noel the character indicate his attraction to men at least once an episode, and he is revealed to have dated Dolly in the past.
  • Childhood Friends: Noel and Dolly have known each other since they were four years old, according to a deleted scene shown in the Making Of documentary on the series one DVD.
  • The Dandy: Wears the mos extravagant outfits known to humanity.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Smooth's blue.

Smooth

Noel's butler and the Only Sane Man.

Andy Warhol

Noel's housekeeper and possibly a robot.

  • Adorkable: Despite being the pioneer of both Noel and Dolly's lifestyles, he's considerably more of a goofy nerd than either.
  • Ambiguously Human: His robotic voice and movements, along with dispensing tickets when he laughs make it unlikely.
  • Attractive Bent-Gender: Apparently Andy Warhol is this when he masquerades as Frida Kahlo. Although it's plainly just Andy in drag, Smooth still seems to fancy him.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Has very little in common with the real Andy Warhol.
  • Machine Monotone
  • Signature Laugh: When Andy Warhol laughs, a string of "individual laughter sheets, strung together like theatre tickets or sausages" comes from his mouth.

Dolly

Noel's best friend. A model and concept artist.

  • Amicable Exes: Noel and Dolly used to date. Now, despite their near-constant bickering, they seem to have no problem staying friends.
  • Anything That Moves: Inanimate objects can "Really turn her on right now."
  • Better as Friends: Noel and Dolly have zero sexual tension despite having once dated. Noel gets a bit irritated whenever Dolly mentions men she dated behind Noel's back when they were together, though.
  • Childhood Friends: Noel and Dolly have known each other since they were four years old, according to a deleted scene shown in the Making Of documentary on the series one DVD.
  • The Fashionista: Loves clothing.
  • The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: Supposedly has many jobs (model, DJ, knitwear designer) but we never see her doing any of them.
  • Really Gets Around: Dolly has dated most of the cast. Several of them while she was still dating Noel.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Dolly is pretty much the only recurring female in the universe.
  • Unexplained Accent: Despite allegedly being Noel's friend since childhood, Dolly has a thick German accent. This is hardly the weirdest thing about the show.

     Noel's neighbours. 

Secret Peter

Noel's landlord.

Tony Reason

A manta ray that's also a music producer.

  • Ass Shove: Apparently Tony Reason's method of familiarising himself with a new work colleague is to insert his finger into that person's anus. That said, Tony doesn't even have fingers, so Lord knows how he manages it.
  • Civilized Animal: Acts very calm.
  • Talking Animal: It turns out most marine life can talk, as seen when he argues with a hammerhead shark.
  • Trademark Favourite Food: Tofu.

Todd Laguna

A hammerhead shark.

Jeremy Beautiful Chest

A dancer with a large heart on his chest.

     Recurring Characters 

Fantasy Man

A wannabe crusader who imagines questing through a virtual world when in reality he's just running around London being a nuisance.

  • Arch-Enemy: Manages to agitate a policeman that he refers to as "the Bobbatron".
  • Captain Ersatz: Of Don Quixote.
  • I Reject Your Reality: Unlike most characters who show up in the various jokes, Fantasy Man does not exist in Noel's world, but in (an) actual reality which he constantly tries to escape from into a 80's text adventure world.
  • Talking Animal: His steed is a unicorn with a soulful singing voice.
  • Windmill Crusader: Has gone on quests such as kidnapping a cat that he believed was "The Dream Tiger" (whack).

Dondylion

  • Back from the Dead: Having been run over by several vehicles in episode 6, he shows up alive and unharmed in episode 7. It's implied that this is because he's a figment of Noel's imagination.

  • Fanboy: Absolutely psyched to be in the second series, to the point where he'd take a meteor to save it.
  • Self-Deprecation: Created as a response to the lukewarm reviews the first series received.

     One-Off Characters 

Little Chrissy, Claw, Spoon Snake & McCoy

A travelling group on a quest to see the Jelly Fox.

  • Amazing Technicolour Population: Should come as no surprise, since they live "over the rainbow".
  • Cartoon Creature: McCoy might be a sea urchin, but the character designs are too loose to confirm.
  • Catchphrase: Spoon Snake can only say "Am IIIIIIIII nothing?".
  • Cat Folk: Little Chrissy.
  • Color-Coded Characters:
    • Little Chrissy is red, the leader and has a history of bloodshed.
    • Claw is blue and passive.
    • Spoon Snake is green and as the only character with a secondary colour, acts a little out there.
    • McCoy is yellow and unruly.
  • Expy: Of the protagonists from The Wizard of Oz.
  • Tin Man: Little Chrissy is an inversion. Instead of having a hidden heart of gold, he's a serial killer who wants to forget about his past.
  • Verbal Tic: Claw goes "Hm-hmmm" and McCoy makes crunching sounds.

King Tutta

A mountain that keeps clucking his tongue to the annoyance of Noel.

Ian Guage

A French-sounding lounge singer and tennis player.

The Tiger with Chlamydia

  • Incoming Ham: THE TIGER WITH CHLAMYDIYA! DUM DUM DUUUUMMMMM!
  • Kaiju: As tall as a skyscraper.

Paul Panfer

A Hawaiian panther-man and film star.

Fantasy Block

A giant that stifles Noel's creativity.

  • Arc Villain: Of the second episode in Series 2.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Since the entire series relies on Noel's imagination, Fantasy Block's presence poses a serious threat.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Getting Terry Gilliam's shit on his skin makes him explode.

Reality Man

A television executive that wants to turn Luxury Comedy into a reality series.

  • Arc Villain: Of the third episode in Series 2.

  • Executive Meddling: In-universe.
  • Jerkass: Calls Noel "Fantasy Dick".
  • Knight of Cerebus: Along with Fantasy Block, he's a serious threat to the fantastical elements of the series. Taking it up a notch in that he was able to curb-stomp Fantasy Man and Big Chief with no effort.

The Cucumbers of Cool

An alien race of cucumber people that inspired the definition of the word "cool".
