The Mighty Boosh News Updates

Up to the minute Boosh news. You'll hear it here first.


BBC Spring/Summer Press Release

The BBC have just released sparse details of next season's programming which is thankfully and finally to include 'The Might Boosh'. We're pleased to hear that the show has defaulted to the original name rather than just the Boosh.

Here is the relevant part of the press release in full.

BBC THREE continually aims to raise the creative bar across all genres and to encourage new ideas and new talent.

This strategy has been most successful in comedy and factual so far; drama is now set to follow.

Comedies such as the RTS award-winning Little Britain, Monkey Dust, Nighty Night and Catterick all took big creative risks and set it apart from other multi-channels.

This season the channel will build on the comedies with two new and imaginative shows: The Mighty Boosh and The Smoking Room.

The Mighty Boosh is written by and stars Perrier Award-winning comedy double act Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt.

It's a magical adventure based in a surreal zoo, with them playing zookeepers Vince and Howard.

Produced by Baby Cow it's a unique departure from the usual comedy formats, so is exactly what BBC THREE should be doing.

Noel and Julian say: "We've tried not to make it like anything else. That was our main goal.

"We hope it's quite accessible; we tried really hard to make it our thing, our world. I hope that comes across."
