The (once) Mighty Boosh,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Mighty Boosh: Live - Future Sailors Tour [DVD] (DVD)
I was a BIG Boosh fan...'til I saw this.
It's a ragbag of what appears to be unused (and unfunny) sketches not good enough to make the show. Even my two favourite characters, Bob Fossil and Tony Harrison, failed to raise a laugh. In fact, during Fossil's opening sketch I wished he'd hurry up and get off...although the Crack Fox was ALMOST funny.
The live audience liked it, but they seemed comprised of the usual suspects who'd laugh at Vince and Howard if they were reading out the worldwide A.I.D.S. fatality statistics.
I wanted to walk out at the intermission and demand a refund, but then I realised I was watching it at home. I wish I had walked out...the second half is worse than the first and Howard's 'play' would benefit from being either a)funny or b)cut.
My recommendation ? Watch the first live tour again. Watching 'Future Sailors' is about as enjoyable as being mauled by a bear.
