Part 2 of Boing Boing Video's interview series with Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding, co-creators, writers, and stars of the "psychedelic comedy" series The Mighty Boosh. In this installment, Noel and Julian share insights into the role music plays in their TV show and live stage performances, and we also learn about "crimping" -- the nonsensical, nerdy, embarassingly British dork-raps you'll see often in their hit BBC program. Imagine these two grown men in crazy character costumes acting out nursery rhymes, and you've got the idea. Or, watch this episode, in which they perform a "Boing Boing" crimp. Yup.
BB caught up with the Boosh gang when they were touring the US to promote the stateside release of a three-season DVD set, also available on iTunes. Cartoon Network's "Adult Swim" recently begain airing episodes in the US, too.
If you missed part 1 of our interview series with Noel and Julian, you'll find that here.
Did you know there's a supervillain made of bubblegum? Watch this episode 'til the very end, and feel his chewy justice.

“Stephen Colbert” is a character that was once played by Stephen Colbert: a right-wing blowhard pundit who called Bill O’Reilly “Papa Bear.” When Colbert took over the Late Show, the “Stephen Colbert” character disappeared (possibly because Viacom claimed the rights to it!), but now and again, he reappears.
