I'm a Big Boosh fan & love their TV material but always find that their audio material is better & more creative. Sadly they haven't done any Audio material since The Mighty Boosh [Audiobook] & so I thought I'd try this one on audio.
The Good news is that the Boosh still have the gift of creative wit & I genuinely laughed-out-loud at some of the routines & their unique way of seeing the world.
Sadly there is bad news.
The first thing is that the Boosh have lost some of their brilliance & don't bring a lot new to the table other than a few stories about the characters & Sandflash & Booblay.
The second thing is that there is a lot of filler on this download & little in the way of a story. Half the show is a funny but lazy run-through of the characters & the other half gives the impression of a short 'Messiah' story stretched out to fill time, with 3 songs (the last of which is rubbish) added on to make up a full performance.
In spite of these criticism's, I still think the Mighty Boosh are better & funnier than most other audio material out there & (unlike their comedic competition) are consistently good at coming up with new material.
I suppose it is still worth hoping that they will one day go fully back to audio but, for now, I'm just happy that they can successfully do both.
