More dates for the Arctic Boosh....
Starting 8 November the boys will be returning to the Hen and Chickens, Highbury Corner (Nearest Tube - Highbury and Islington) for a weekly residence every monday.
The Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith will be host to the Boosh for the following dates in December and January...
As well as these dates, they will also be in Milton Keynes on 12 Dec and Exeter on 19 Dec.
Last night's Perrier Pick was another great night and the Arctic Boosh went down brilliantly well. It was in association with Channel 4 and will be shown some time in November (I'll let you know when I get more information).
The Boosh was never scheduled for Morcambe at the end of November, it was scheduled for the end of October but that has been cancelled, so it has been rescheduled for Wednesday November 10th 1999. Platform Morcambe (Central Promenade) 01524 582803
Starts at 8pm Prices £8/£7

**Apologies if this doesn't interest you at all but I know some will be.
On Nov 1st, the Divine Comedy are releasing the single 'Gin Soaked Boy' and the B-side will be the infamous Eurovision Song "My Lovely Horse"!! Forgot to say there'll also be a remix of "Songs of Love" the theme tune from Father Ted.
**The 1999 Perrier Award went to Al Murray - Pub Landlord (eventually!)
**Arctic Boosh has been nominated for the Perrier Award - how fantastic is that?!
The other nominees are Al Murray (again), Simon Munnery (League Against Tedium), Terry Alderton (his first year at the fringe), and Ross Noble.
Also Arctic Boosh was nominated for the Granada writing award but unfortunately they didn't win.
Arctic Boosh is now more or less completely sold out for the rest of the festival - I believe you can only get tickets for monday. I'll try to get to a computer sunday morning to let you know who won.
Glad to be able to send out such fantastic news.

Last year's Perrier Best Newcomer Award Winners, The Mighty Boosh join us live at 2.30pm to answer your questions. Their show has been described as "Genuinely weird but wonderfully funny" and "Imagine Reeves and Mortimer in a Carry On movie", so the weirder the questions, the better.
