Publisher's Summary

The Mighty Boosh is unlike any show you are ever likely to hear, and one that defies description; the closest you could get to the unique style of Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding would be in the early days of Reeves and Mortimer, with their cardboard props and men with sticks.But unlike Reeves and Mortimer, the Boosh zookeepers turned postmen Howard Moon (Julian) and Vince Noir (Noel), never leave their own world. The Mighty Boosh inhabits a universe entirely of its own.

Bonus:This audio programme also contains an interview with the creators Noel and Julian plus outtakes from the show.

MIGHTY!

You have to listen to this. It is so funny, hip, and down right odd. I've fallen in love with the world of the Mighty Boosh and hope you will too.

Best British radio comedy in years

This collection contains all 6 episodes of the 2002 BBC radio series. The show is written and performed by celebrated stand up comedians Noel Fielding and Julian Barrett and features characters they created for their highly acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe shows The Mighty Boosh, Artic Boosh and Auto Boosh. Each episode centers around zoo keepers Howard Moon and Vince Noir as they skank out of their zooly duties and set off on some fool's erand. Adventures include: befriending polar bears, looking for a man with a really big head, releasing hideous mutants/animal hybrids, transporting a killer prawn to a zoo for bad animals and chasing the jazz train.

If you have seen either of the hit BBC 3 TV versions of The Boosh then you know the kind of thing to expect; but you are in for a real treat! The radio series is looser, more improvised and much funnier then the TV show.

If you need a basis for comparison, it's surreal like Vic Reeves Big Night Out, features outlandish stories like Comic Strips Presents, but still manages to be funny.

If surreal comedy is not your thing you should still give it a try. Fielding and Barret's characters and outlandish situations manage to capture the essence of classic Steptoe and Son. Two opposing men apparently trapped together for eternity, getting up to all sorts. I cannot recommend this highly enough.
