Publisher's Summary

The Mighty Boosh is unlike any show you are ever likely to hear, and one that defies description; the closest you could get to the unique style of Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding would be in the early days of Reeves and Mortimer, with their cardboard props and men with sticks.

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.

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.

HAHAHAHAHA I'm dying.

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.

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!

Utterly Sublime, Unsettling and So Weirdly Funny

This is not for everyone, but that is okay. It can be thought provoking then laugh-aloud uproariously funny. Cannot recommend this one enough.

TV Series was better but this is a hoot!

If you could sum up The Mighty Boosh in three words, what would they be?

Zany bizarre hilarity

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Mighty Boosh?

Vince asking if the black spots on bananas are tarantula eggs

What does Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Their hilarious vocal characteristics

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Easily

Any additional comments?

The tv show is better due to the surreal visuals & hilarious antics of the cast. Bob Fossil is one of my favorites. The great thing about this audio version, however - is that you get to use your imagination, which is what it's all about!

Great precursor to the tele show.

Hilarious and supernally strange. To hear these variety of characters is a look inside the wild genius mind-creators.
