But unlike Reeves and Mortimer, the Boosh zookeepers turned postmen Howard Moon (Juilan) and Vince Noir (Noel), never leave their own world. The Mighty Boosh inhabits a universe entirely of its own.

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.
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!
Just as fun and entertaining as the TV show!
Bob Fossil cracks me up every time!
These two have great chemistry together and work off each other so well.
I laughed out loud at more then a few points.
I almost didn't buy this because I thought it might be just audio from the TV series, which I've already watched a few times. But no, it's all fresh material! Very similar to the TV show, but not the same. If you enjoyed the show, or even if you've only seen the infamous "Old Gregg" sketch on Youtube, you will LOVE this audio performance.
The boys do a fantastic job of conveying all the bizarre images and ideas of their world in a radio-show format. It sounds great and I found myself laughing uncontrollably every five minutes or so. There's also an interview with the guys at the end.
If you've never heard or seen Mighty Boosh before, it's a totally absurd and surreal semi-improvised comedy act. It centers on two main characters, with help here from a third. There's a loose framework that the two main guys are employed in a zoo owned by the third guy, and the zoo does come into it, but only as a launching point for utterly insane otherworldly shenanigans.
If you're already a fan of Boosh, buy it. If absurdity makes you laugh, buy it. If you like everything to remain neat, logical, and under control, keep moving.
