Representatives for The Mighty Boosh have denied rumours of a new film and tour that surfaced over the weekend.

On January 5, The Mail on Sunday wrote that Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt were working on a long-mooted Mighty Boosh feature film and quoted Fielding saying that they would be touring in the New Year (2014).

Noel Fielding quickly took to Twitter to deny the story, writing that he would "rather have my balls dipped in acid than speak to the Mail". Subsequently, management for the comedy duo clarified the story was not true to comedy website The Velvet Onion.



Dave Brown, who played the ape Bollo in the cult BBC comedy series, also posted about the report. He wrote, "From what I can see the source is The Mail? Nuff said."




Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt last reunited on stage as The Mighty Boosh Band at London's Soho Theatre on September 29-30, 2013, as a warm up for their appearance at Tenacious D's Festival Supreme in Santa Monica, California the following month.

Although The Mighty Boosh never officially split, the pair had not previously worked together since 2009's Boosh Live: Future Sailors tour. Since their last live appearance together, Barratt and Fielding have pursued solo projects, with Barratt concentrating on theatre and Fielding creating Noel Fielding's Luxury Comedy for E4.
