    Did you get a chance to ask Noel if he’ll be returning as Richmond in the next series of IT Crowd?

    DVD release in US? you mean you didn’t have it shipped from the UK and bought a PAL DVD player just so you could watch it like I did?

    They surely deserve to be popular here. Im always disappointed when everyone gets on the bandwagon though. I should be happy for them, but now come the masses.

    their seemed to be a boingboing reference in the song they did on Jimmy Fallons show.

    Wow, major Boing Boing / Xeni coup!

    I find the show rather uneven . . . but I faithfully watch every episode, because when it’s good it’s surreal and wonderful like nothing else.

    I totally missed them at Comic Con. I probably wouldn’t have had anything to say anyway except “Hur funny haha PEPPERMINT NIGHTMARE!” so maybe it was for the best.

    I am the only person I know that loves this show where i live, and I almost prefer it that way. Whenever I watch it, people actually leave.

    Hi! I love Mighty Boosh too, so surrealistic and fun. I’ve just made a mix of Lady Gaga’s “Love Game” with the Mighty Boosh’s original dialog. Check it out on my site!: DJ Bread n Butter

    that will be fun to watch, the boingboing crimp.. in an interview, a bbc exec said that noel and julian are very serious about crimps and spend days thinking them up.. the boosh are genius, and it’s nice that the bbc works that way, allows artists to produce intensely funny and intelligent shows without dumbing them down, as happens in the USA

    Actually, I prefer the first series to the second, and the second to the third. The third series was reeeeeally inconsistent.

    Also, the adolescent Boosh quoting gets really irritating after a while (like Xeni said, it’s HUGE here in the UK, especially amongst “alternative” teens).

    Lastly, another great new British comedy show has just finished here in the UK – PSYCHOVILLE. It was created by two actors/writers from The League of Gentlemen, another classic weird British comedy. I highly recommend it.

    The Boosh in my opinion is the most awesome and funny show created – Noel and Julian have a genius imagination, and they are shockingly funny, i can only hope there is more to come.

    Many of my peers just don’t ‘get it’, i just hope over the water they give it a chance, but also in a way i want to selfishly keep it all for myself! There are still plenty of people in the uk that haven’t heard of the Boosh – unbelievable!!

    I hope this reads ok, i can’t express myself well, i dont have a pencil case story…………….

    Their radio show was miles better than any of their TV series.
    Once they became obsessed with how it looked (and it does look bloody marvellous) they forgot to put any jokes in. Better songs too.

    Mandatory Boosh Quote:
    “Alabaster Moon won’t you shine your milky face down on me – Hit me with your creamy laser!”

    If possible, I’d recommend people hear the radio show that preceded the TV series – in the same way as Flight of the Conchords, a lot of their more recognisable characters & songs started on radio and were just as (if not more) funny than their TV counterparts.

    I saw them perform their stage show in Nottingham here in the UK (and attended the subsiquent afterparty – Rich Fulcher talked to me at length about his then-new series Snuffbox, look it up!) and if their US tour is anything similar then you’re in for a treat…

    What really pissed me off was that they cut out parts of the show when it was shown on Adult Swim.

    Luckily I already owned all 3 seasons. But that still sucks for people who only watch it on Adult Swim.

    The Boosh appeared on late night TV. Please post complaints that you can’t get hulu to, not here.

    OMG!!!–the guy is wearing a shirt like i got at the PX at Ft Benning in 1967.

    You lucky buggers!
    I wanted to follow up with some witty reparte from the show, but there’s so many lovelies to choose from.

    Let’s just agree that throwing satsumas are each other in the snow, in our pants is a good idea.

    I really don’t like this show. Its premise seems to be, “look how BRITISH we are! That means we’re funny!”

    Actually 1am on a Sunday is prime time for adult swim.

    A Boing Boing crimp? This will surely be a thing of legend.

    My favourites:
    Croutons, croutons! Crunchy friends in a liquid broth!
    And he melted, like a pink bitch.

    1am is actually not too bad – you have to remember, it was the 3am slot on BBC Three when it began, which they take the piss out of in The Power of the Crimp (and the live show that’s on DVD – ‘could you get any fucking later!?!’) They got moved to an earlier slot for Season 3 ‘cos it was so popular – the first episode from season 3 is the most watched show of all time on BBC Three!

    Not to mention that when they began, it was on a local London radio station, between two sports programmes!!! Eeep! Could you imagine it? Just gearing up for the football, then ‘..calm a llama down, calm a llama deep down in the ocean blue…’ etc. Heeheehee.

    I went to see the Boosh at their stage show in Oxford last November, and it was so hilarious I went again the following night (cheers, birthday presents and such!), and I’ve already pre-ordered to super duper limited edition one from! :D

    I am Sunflaaaaash. I am from… da fuchaaaa.

    So far I haven’t found any humans who love this show as much as I do. Only far away and probably not real internet robot “people.”

  25. J France says:

    As long as a network doesn’t surgically dump all over the Booshdom via a craptastic US remake, I don’t really care if it picks up there or not.

    And it’s probably better to miss the first season, anyhow, and watch it after seeing the second and third. I know many people who couldn’t stand it until the slight evolution of funny the show underwent between seasons 1 – 2.

    And BBvideo – do you need an Oceanic / Australiasian correspondant? I have the time, I have the equipment. Just let me know when I start….

  26. Chief Fulfiller of Needs says:

    I remain envious of my wonderful friends for having the opportunity to interview and hang out with these wonderfully hilarious people! The show has become a necessary staple in our little home by the sea.

    bOINGbOING crimped!?!?

    surely this must be the rapture =D

  29. Funky16Corners says:

    YES!! The Boosh! I wish someone would ask Noel what kind of accent the moon is supposed to have…

  30. Xeni Jardin says:

    @FUNKY16CORNERS, this matter was addressed! I believe the words were “Italian/Eastern European/speech impediment/stupid.”

  31. Funky16Corners says:

    I can sleep tonight!

  32. Takuan says:

    ach! the stale conventionalism.

  33. elpajaronegro says:

    The only time I ever comment on BB is when Xeni writes something about the Boosh. I am stupidly in love with that show. I really wish I could have gotten to either coast to see the boys in person.

    Awesome, I can’t wait for the interview. I caught them in New York last week for their DVD signing. Nice bunch of chaps.
