Above, THE LIVE SHOW:
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.
Below, A FAST BOOK REVIEW:
The hardcover Mighty Book of Boosh will be followed by a new, updated paperback edition due out this October: The Pocket Book of Boosh. We received an advance copy of the soon-to-be-released paperback, and i shot a little iPhone video snapshot review (about a minute long, embedded below). Short version of my review: great for attention-deficit-addled trufans. Every page is something vivid, wacky, and different than the prior page. I absolutely loved it. (Watch on YouTube).
After the jump: Photos snapped on iPhone while thumbing through the book.

Boing Boing's BOOSH INTERVIEW SERIES:
Part 1 of our interview series with Noel and Julian is mostly about crazed fans. Part 2 is mostly about music and crimping. Part 3 reveals slash fiction, Eleanor's secret military connections, and the Boing Boing crimp.
