Funny as hell.

I saw this the other night at a friends. I must admit I didn't follow the TV show. It never really caught on with me and I thought it sounded stupid. Oh how wrong I was. This is without doubt one of the funniest things you will ever see. Its totally hilarious. Vince Noir is brilliant along with all of the others and it just doesn't stop making you laugh. Seriously If you just get a night with a few friends and watch it. You wont stop laughing for hours. And even on your own it has the same effect. Some of the gags are outstanding and they all flow with each other as well. Even before the show actually starts the conversation between the two of them is so dam hilarious. Im laughing now as I type this. Brilliant 10/10

Got it the second time around

I had already been a Boosh fan when I got this Live DVD, so I was expecting a lot when I put it in my DVD player. At first I was disappointed, though. The live setting didn't seem to work for me. I found people laughing at everything all the time irritating and not fitting for this kind of humour. Also, a lot of bits in the show had already been used before in earlier stand-up acts or the group's TV show and that initially turned me off.

Strangely, though, this didn't bother me the second time I watched the show. The more those jokes are repeated, the funnier they get for some reason. And the live performance really seemed to work, too, all of a sudden. "The Mighty Boosh" had originally started as a stage production, so it's no wonder Noel and Julian know how to use the theatre setting to their advantage. Costumes and props add to the show's charm even more so than they did in the TV series. Suddenly I found myself really loving this performance. There's something about the Boosh that you have to get into it before you can fully appreciate this wacky little universe.

There are some flaws in the show, however. Noel Fielding steps out of character too often, which is not quite as funny as he thinks it is. Rich Fuller can be hilarious. I loved one of his bits about how every private eye on TV has a certain weakness, for instance, but sometimes he just acts like a screaming little child that wants some attention, and that shows all too often in his live performance.

Apart from these little missteps this show rocks, though. It's great to see characters like Old Gregg, The Hitcher and the one who goes by many names again. If a few bad jokes had been cut, out the whole thing would have been even greater, but as it is it's still one of the most original and lovable comedy acts I've ever seen. In the end "The Mighty Boosh Live" is a worthy addition to the DVD collection of everyone who liked the radio and TV series.

I'm 13 and on new years eve i sat down and began to watch the mighty boosh live which i got for Christmas. the mighty boosh was very funny it was one of the funniest things I've ever seen live this year(2006) but the mighty boosh got a bit boring you get fed up after 2 hours but there's a lot of laughs and a sure good ending. the mighty boosh overall could of been better by bringing in the show sooner but it was a show ill never forget and ill still love it for 2007.

p.s. this DVD is worth buying in my opinion get out there and buy it for the new year 2007!

happy new year!!!!

Inane and tedious

Author: zenmasterx
28 February 2007

After being recommended this by friends I borrowed it off one of them. I stuck it in the drive and was expecting some good stuff.

20 minutes later I laughed once. Out of the one hour before I turned it off I laughed about four times, fewer than a 5 minute skit from YouTube.

Maybe I just have a crap sense of humour or don't understand it for some reason but I just did not find it funny. The scenes were drawn out with rambling conversations which added up to nothing, in fact, the first twenty minutes is spent telling the audience that it will start. The main characters have little stage presence. One has an air of pretending to pretend to be pretentious and the other giggles like an idiot with a tedious voice.
