The "Mighty Boosh" (Audio CD)
Advantages: Surreal, wacky and brilliant
Disadvantages: Not for fans of 'Keeping up Appearances'
The Mighty Boosh are Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding, they started life on stage and developed a cult following before creating this innovative and wacky radio show which eventually transferred to tv and became a cult classic in its own right.
The Mighty Boosh follows two characters, Howard Moon (Barratt) a jazz funk enthusiast who thinks he knows everything, but doesn't even know what he knows, and Vince Noir (Fielding) a strange androgynous fashion icon who is too cool for school and brings a touch of Hoxton to their jobs as zookeepers at Zooniverse.
This is a 3 CD boxset following the adventures of Howard and Vince as they search for animal thieves, eggs in the arctic tundra and getting trapped inside a hitchikers box. This is surreal comedy and for those who like this kind of thing, this is these two at their most creative.
Availability: Available in most good bookstores, it is also available in Zavvi and HMV, price on Amazon is £9.98.
What do you get:
3 CD's covering over 3 hours of comedy, this is a must for any Boosh fan, it includes interviews and is well worth the tenner you pay:
CD1: Episode 1 - Stolen
CD1: Episode 2 - Jungle
CD2: Episode 3 - Jazz
CD2: Episode 4 - Mutants
CD3: Episode 5 - Tundra
CD3: Episode 6 - Hitcher
Interview with Danny Wallace and the Boosh
I love this, just like the first couple of series of the Boosh this is the lads at their best, creative, surreal, having fun with words and their imaginations, radio is perfect for this style of comedy as it allows them to play with concepts to unnending conclusions, the support characters such as Naboo, Bob Fossil and the ape are all there as well as the best comedy from the first two series of the tv show. The humour is funny but not obvious, both characters are funny although Moon is a more natural comic character.
Overall this is a delightful cd and well worth your money.
