Customer Review

on 15 September 2005
This is surreal British comedy at it's absolute best! Howard moon and Vince Noir are a pair of zookeepers. Howard is "a man of action" in his own words, a jazz maverick who spans the genres. He does novels, poetry, organises raffles etc. Howard on the other hand is a vain lad, who's hair is integral to the show. Though, as you can see on the CD cover, it is fantastic.
The pair work in a run down zoo with only a 100 year old ape, a rock named Jesus and Tony the prawn. The zoo is run by an angry American, Bob Fossil, who basically shouts at Howard and Vince and puts bra's on monkeys. But you need to hear the CD to understand all that.
The duo get into all kinds of shananagans, such as going to the Arctic, Being sentenced to death in a Jungle club and being trapped in a box by a cockney nutjob. All of which they come out of unscathed and with some hilarious outcome.
The series is full of songs such about cockney hitchikers with solo polo vision and "Little Johnny Frostbite". Plus hilarious one liners which have to be heard to be belived.
This CD is possibly the best thing I have heard in years, after hearing odd episodes on BBC radio during my mid teens, I'm totally hooked, The boosh Radio series is one of the best investments you can make. You can never seemingly grow tired of the boosh.
Though with all said, the humour is distinctivly British, with lots of refrences to Camden, Cockneys, Twix's and an array of all things British. If you're not a fan of other Brit comedys then perhaps it might not be for you. Though that shouldn't put you off sampling a piece of this delightful taste of contemparary British comedy. though the surreality might not be to everyones taste.
Fielding and Barratt make a fabulous double act, who if you allow into your life, will make it a better place.
A great idea and 2 wayward genius's = The fuynniest thing to come out of England in 10 years.
The radio series led to the brilliant TV series being comissioned, which see the Boosh in the zooniverse and an array of new characters, which you should also check out. Many of the gags get carried along to the screen, but a whole new dimesion is added with the addition of actually seeing vinces magnificant hair,
