Today, the final installment of Boing Boing Video video series about the "psychedelic comedy" series The Mighty Boosh, starring Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding: exclusive excerpts from their recent live performance at the Roxy in Los Angeles. We're handing over our video masters to los del Boosh to do with what they will, but they kindly gave us permission to post this brief, impressionistic snapshot of what it's like to experience their craziness live. Bollo (Dave Brown), Naboo the Enigma (Michael Fielding), and Bob Fossil (Rich Fulcher and Eleanor) were also on hand, and they appear in this video. They were all 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.
