Are you ready to set sail into the future? Climb aboard HMS Boosh, hoist the perspex anchor, set the controls for the heart of the sun and come navigate the electrical seas with Cyborg Patrick and his Neon Barnacles.
In this live Boosh presentation, you will hear Howard wrestle with the problems of the universe in tiny shorts, while Vince gets his hair extra big and flounces about. You shall then weep with salty joy as Bollo and Naboo move about and say stuff in their own special way.
The Boosh are mighty and sailing at you, strap your ears onto your brain double tight, cos it's gonna get choppy like electric sushi.
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.
