Beautiful nonsense from my favourite duo
Would you consider the audio edition of The Mighty Boosh to be better than the print version?
Just finished listening to the radio series and my enjoyment of it is tinged with sadness that that's it and there is no more. If you loved the Mighty Boosh TV series, this won't disappoint you either.
Noel Fielding admitted that in his opinion, the radio show was the best one by far, because so much of it is left to the listener's imagination. The TV series is such a visual feast, but the radio series does firmly stand on its own and is hugely enjoyable.
What did you like best about this story?
The adventures are timeless and will definitely stand the test of time. Vince and Howard's friendship is very believable, even though they are complete opposites of each other. I think most viewers/listeners will find them relatable and identify more with one or the other. Despite the banter, there's this quality of ease that can only exist between two people who know each other very well and have become like extensions of each other's selves.
Have you listened to any of Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt ’s other performances? How does this one compare?
I love the TV series of the Mighty Boosh, and I have listened to "An Evening With Noel Fielding", some "Luxury Comedy", as well as seen "Mindhorn" with Julian Barrat (absolutely hilarious). I would say that the TV series of the Mighty Boosh is still my favourite, but that could simply have to do with the order in which I discovered it all. Personally, I feel that anything they are in will leave you feeling like you just bathed in warm sunshine after a bleak winter. Noel Fielding is a darling and will elevate and inspire you.
Any additional comments?
If you're loved the Boosh in any way, shape or form, just go for it!

The Scenery is better in Your head!
The Boosh is like ... Sardines - you either love them or you hate them. I'm afraid I'm the former, so if you really don't like them, then this format probably won't convert you.
However, if you're into wordplay, verbal imagery & surreal comedy, then this is still the best place to hear them at their zenith.
Why? Several reasons.
First is that this is the First Boosh release. Hence it is fresh, creative & had not been done before. You may recognise some parts of it from the TV episodes (e.g. Howard Moon having one leg shorter than the other), but this is where they FIRST used this stuff, so it lacks the tongue-in-cheek nature of later repeats.
Second is that this format allows your imagination to go wild! Though the TV show is great, there is something even better when you concentrate on the words.
For instance, the line 'What is this voodoo? Black Milk? The Wet Jigsaw?' would be ignorable on TV, but here your brain generates an image which puts a different spin on it.
Third, and best of all, is Bob Fossil! Bob Fossil didn't do much in TV Series one and was killed off. But here he is fantastic! There's even a song about him, which is inexplicably missed out on TV (despite the fact that it is arguably the Boosh's greatest song).
And, some of his lines are amazing. When I'm stressed at work, I find one of his lines (said at exceedingly high volume) can always crack people up.
Which one? 'I need some drugs!'
Anyhow, my apologies if I seem over-enthusiastic, but I'm genuinely yet to find anything (on Amazon) as compelling & brilliant as the Mighty Boosh. And of all that they've done, this easily ranks as the best.
That said, feel free to take in other reviews for a balanced perspective.
If you still feel drawn to it afterwards then I promise you: you won't regret it.

Bloody Briliant !!!!
I listen to a lot of BBC Radio Comedy from their website, everything from the Goon Show to the Pythonesque 80's. When I caught the last segment of The Boosh, I immediately did an Audible search to buy the rest of it. The characters are instantly established and the comedy that ensues is some of the funniest ever recorded. Simply and brilliantly absurd. Like Python, it will surely be repeated verbatim from the lips of the next generation.

Fun, Funny, Original
This is one of my favorite Audible downloads. Lots of fun with wit and improvosation throughout. Do yourself a favor and spend a book credit. If you don't find yourself laughing out loud, ask someone you trust if they think you have a sense of humor. Cheers!
