Reviews

Are you ready to set sail into the future? Climb aboard HMS Boosh, hoist the perspex anchor, set the controls for the heart of the sun and come navigate the electrical seas with Cyborg Patrick and his Neon Barnacles.

In this live Boosh presentation you will see Howard wrestle with the problems of the universe in tiny shorts, while Vince gets his hair extra big and flounces about, Bob Fossil's dance moves will turn you on then anger you over and over until you puke. You shall then weep with salty joy as Bollo and Naboo move about and say stuff in their own special way. The Boosh are mighty and sailing at you, strap your eyes onto your brain double tight, cos it's gonna get choppy like electric sushi.


Limited Edition Includes:
  • The Mighty Boosh Future Sailors Tour. 
  • The Mighty Boosh Live (2006) Tour Double Disc.
  • Bonus Disc: Exclusive Future Sailors Documentary.
  • Behind The Scenes Movie Clips and Unseen Photo Galleries all packaged in a special Boosh tin. 
  • Exclusive Items: Boosh Outrage' Playing Cards and Boosh Belt Buckle.

In parts, rather amusing. Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt are consummate performers, and their good-will and child-like playfulness is evident both in their act and in their interactions with their audience. There is a genuine - and in these days, rare - warmth in the banter between Fielding, Barratt and their fans that is perhaps nowhere more evident than in their live shows.

For the viewer at home, this show provides much of the Boosh spirit that pervaded the television and radio series. In what must surely be a nod to Morecambe and Wise (for those who remember or have since watched that classic comedy duo), the highlight of the show is Howard Moon's attempt to engage in some serious and 'powerful' acting, reminiscent of Ernie Wise's plays 'what I wrote'. Typically, this attempt is sabotaged - or enlivened - by Vince's interventions.

Aside from this, the show is little more than an excuse to wheel on the usual suspects, some of whom (for example, Tony Harrison) are in danger of becoming a little stale. The Crack Fox remains a wonderfully disturbing creation, but perhaps some new characters are needed to prevent the Boosh from becoming a merely ritualistic offering of crowd-pleasing catchphrases. This may keep the established fanbase fairly satisfied, but it would do little to gain them new interest.

Naboo and Bollo are at the sidelines of the performance, which may disappoint fans of those characters, but in a show as sprawling as the Boosh it's inevitable that some aspects are highlighted and not others. Naboo was at the centre of the 2006 stage show, and so the Future Sailors Tour focuses on Howard and Vince as they struggle forward to some uncertain destiny.

Let's hope that the future is one in which the Boosh will continue to evolve.

The live show itself isn't bad if you're a Boosh fan (and I assume that only existing fans will be getting this edition). But no surprises - a lot of sketches and a few songs (I remember the band playing a lot more when I saw them at Wembley though), rather than a completely new Boosh story.

But the Limited Edition is simply not worth the extra money. You get a four disc edition of the DVD, but it's really a two disc version of the 2008 tour and he other two discs are the last Live Boosh DVD (2006), so most of the people buying this one will already have them already.

The extras from the 2008 tour are not worth bothering with unless you are desperate to own everything they have ever released on DVD - a fairly shoddy behind the scenes/on tour film and some bits and pieces that don't add up to much.

You also get a pack of Outrage cards (Boosh Top Trumps), a Boosh Belt Buckle, and a tin with the DVDs in it. All quite good in themselves, but all destined to remain in the pack once you've had a look at them once.

For content, stick with the single disc standard edition - you aren't missing much. The non-DVD elements are quite good but the DVD itself simply smacks of a complete lack of effort. An exercise in style over substance, and taking advantage of the loyalty of Boosh fans to generate as much money as possible.

Compared to the first Live DVD and the 3 series that preceeded it, this show was a pretty major let down. There was no "story" to speak of, the comedy was often pretty flat and the songs were just awful. Mostly just rehashed versions of past classics that didnt sound half as good as they did in the show. Bob Fossil was even more annoying than before, which is an achievment in itself when you consider his whole act is to basically be as over the top random and moronic as possible. Even Naboo and Bollo got a tiny part, which they did nothing with. I actually found myself speeding the DVD upto double speed on a number of occasions so I could get past some of the seriously unfunny parts sooner.

To be fair it wasnt all bad. The parts where it was just Howard and Vince talking on stage were quite funny at times. The inclusion of Tony Harrison and the Crack Fox were nice additons to the show, and their attack on the Honey Monster for stealing their crimp style was a nice touch. But what few laughs there were to be had were few and far between.

Overall this really just felt like a poorly thought out shadow of the former Boosh style we all fell in love with. I got the Limited Edition version, and I really regret that decision now. If you want to buy this at all, just get this "normal" one. The extras are NOT worth the additional cost. I really hope they manage to come up with fresh new content for any future shows they do, because this tired rehash of past material, stripped of all the parts that made if funny or memorable, could prove to be the first nail in the Boosh coffin.

First off, I'm a HUGE Mighty Boosh fan, and was so pleased when I got this as a Christmas Present from my boyfriend! This box includes both Mighty Boosh Lives, 2 additional extra discs that are all packed into a very cool MB Tin, some "Top Trump" cards called Outrage! and a jazzy Booshly Belt Buckle. Awesome!
However... I find both live shows tedious, they seem to go on forever and also full of banter between Julian and Noel instead of being show-focused.
There are some great moments, extremely funny parts and when they perform the songs they are great, however this doesn't make up for the fact that there's a lot of just-plain-mumbling between characters, they hardly do any songs and they're just not as funny as they are in the series. I found this box-set paticularly drawn-out. It's good for any Boosh fan to add to their collection, however it's probably just a view-every-blue-moon set for me personally, which is a shame because Boosh are awesome!
