The Mighty Boosh at Brixton Academy
I went along to Brixton to see what the Mighty Boosh had in store for their next set of shows. Noel Fielding and Julien Barratt gave their fans exactly what they wanted; favourite characters from past shows and lots of witty banter. The show had a classic tendancy for absolute silliness and many of the funniest moments were (as ever) the ones appeared unrehearsed. When Fielding entered a sofa to play the bodyless character Tony Harrison, it seemed that a planned performance was completely impossible. Because the microphone at the front of the sofa had not been turned on, nothing but helpless whimperings could be heard from the stage. Fielding dealt with this in excellent humour and had the audience on his side from the beginning anyway!
Check out some of the pictures I took last night:
