You don't have to be stoned to enjoy this show, but it helps.

The Mighty Boosh is a pretty great show. It follows two friends, Vince Noir and Howard Moon and their crazy adventures. The humour on this show is an acquired taste though. You’ll probably love it, or hate it. The show often breaks the fourth wall, and has a lot of musical numbers. If you are familiar with Noel Fielding and his work, you can understand this show and it’s format a bit better. If not, you would have to have an open mind to understand a few jokes. Although many have not heard of this show, one of the characters (Old Gregg) gained popularity online in the mid to late 2000s. Depending on what you find as funny, this show could be great or could be terrible. I do recommend that you give it a watch though!

I saw THE MIGHTY BOOSH some time ago and decided to rewatch it. I haven't been disappointed. The first season, which I considered the show's weakest, was funnier than I remembered. It's chock full of odd characters, dripping with pithy dialogue, and seasoned with non-sequitur short, it's quintessentially British.

A great, odd little show that originally ran as a late night staple in the UK. It follows the adventures of the vain but likeable Vince Noir and his awkward but capable friend Howard Moon. The pair go from misadventure to misadventure, encountering arctic monsters, getting into boxing matches with kangaroo's, and facing the mysterious witcher.

Season 1 is more of a live action version of the original radio show (which is hilarious). In this season, Howard and Vince's adventures take place at the zoo where they work. Seasons 2 and 3 have Howard and Vince working at the shaman Naboo's antique store "Nabootique" outside of London. I prefer season 1 to 2 and 3 mainly because I love the radio show, but all three seasons are great on their own. Their live shows, which are also mostly based on the radio show, can usually be found on youtube.

This is the kind of show that some people will really like and others will hate. Silly, eccentric characters and humor, I like!!

I had the unfortunate pleasure of watching this show. None of their jokes were funny enough to make me crack a grin or even a slight chuckle. I gave up after the second episode. It's very dry comedy for the birds. Pass.

Love this show. Vince is very concerned about his hair. Howard thinks he is a great writer, musician, thinker. They are zoo keepers at the Zoo-niverse. The other characters are hilarious. Their boss Bob Fossil doesn't know anything about the animals (calls the snake 'the windy man'). Mystic Naboo is a chillin dude. The animals talk. It is wildly funny and imaginative!
