I <3 The Mighty Boosh

10 Sep

The arctic is no respecter of fashion.

The Mighty Boosh takes place in a zoo. Except for when it takes place in a flat. Or in a shop. Or in the arctic. Or on a beach with talking coconuts. It changes every season (and sometimes within a season) following the adventures of Howard Moon (with his very memorable face) and Vince Noir (who understands animals).

If you like silly and clever comedy, check this show out. I’d seen small clips of it before I decided to watch it (and blew through the all the episodes in weeks) and had felt kind of baffled. They were odd, they were ridiculous, they were just plain weird. In the context of an episode, the scenes are brilliant. Every show has a running theme where it feels like you sort of know it’s there until the end, when it hits you like a ton of hilarious bricks. The Mighty Boosh is written and acted by Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt, with most episodes featuring music written by Barratt. You might think it’s strange, you might feel confused, and if you’re anything like me, you’ll also laugh your ass off.
