The Mighty Boosh is a cult British comedy. It starred British comedians, Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt. Their characters, Vince Noir and Howard Moon, get up to allsorts of crazy stuff, that’s incredibly funny. Along the way, they meet alsorts of characters. In one episode, we even see legendary The Who singer, Roger Daltrey (he does his own hoovering, we learn!) Absolute comedy gold, then!

 

Boosh!

 

A jazz maestro extraordinaire,

and Cockney sweep, with gothic hair!

 

Their adventures through time and space

see them end up in some strange place . . .

 

At first they both worked in a zoo,

along with mystical Naboo

 

Each episode has its own craze,

like Bryan Ferry’s jungle ways!

 

A daft caper, a silly tune,

and don’t forget the talking moon

 

For comedy, nothig finer,

take Old Gregg, with his mangina!

 

It really just can’t be outdone:

The Mighty Boosh — so full of fun!

Many readers of SciFiPulse, and indeed May The Verse Be With You may never have seen The Mighty Boosh! It’s well worth it, as there’s plenty to enjoy. However, there are occurences of Blackface in the show, which has rightly been held up as wrong, and unnaceptable. What helps to make the show so funny are the super-cheap effects, and crazy creations! See you next Friday, readers!
