If you like your comedy surreal and foolish with a gently twisted edge then look no further and come with us now on a journey through time and space to the world of the Mighty Boosh.

English comedians Noel Fielding and Julian Barrett play Vince Noir and Howard Moon two dreamers working in a zoo (the Zooniverse owned by American Bob Fossil, played by Rich Fulcher) who spend each episode on magical, and often rather silly adventures. Whether thay are arguing about jazz versus electro like two 12 years olds, crossing the arctic tundra to steal a magical emerald or trying to escape from Ape Hell their colourful sets, costumes and fabulously original music numbers (each episode has a musical set piece) will enchant you.

Strange little animations, puppets, men in animal costumes, cheap but effective sets and special effects all add to the charm. It's an innocent charm but an odd one. The comedy is innocently surreal rather than dark.

Beware though - if you like your comedy mainstream and obvious humour, move along. There is nothing for you here...

A friend of mine who lives in Wales turned me on to this show a couple years ago. I have seen the Region 2 copies of these discs, and it's about time they make these available stateside.

It's a strange show to try to describe to someone; they love to go off on wild adventures, and they really pack in the surrealism. It's tempting to ask "what were they smoking?", but it's obvious there's much more to the show than meets the eye. I always tell people that if you look beyond the strange characters, music and stories, it's really about the back and forth rapport between the two main characters, Howard Moon & Vince Noir. Kind of a trippy Laurel & Hardy, if you will.

Some of the more memorable characters ("I'm Old Gregg!") come in later seasons, but the first season contains one of my favorite episodes, about an Alice Cooper loving creature made of old bubble gum named Charlie. A Hubba Bubba nightmare indeed.

The Mighty Boosh has produced some of the funniest stuff I've seen in many years. Their radio show, the television show, their live shows, it's all insane and creative and brilliant. Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding have combined an unlikely duo and plopped them in ridiculous situations with some off-the-wall companions and villains, all backed with beautiful artistic sets and costuming and the kind of music you could listen to on your mp3 player.

Buy this set, and all future releases from these guys. You won't regret it.

Sometimes I wonder what they have in the water in England. First they produced "Monty Python," and now they have "The Mighty Boosh."

And while the basic description (two guys have wacky adventures at zoo) sounds like a slightly-out-of-the-ordinary sitcom, the reality is anything but. "The Mighty Boosh: The Complete Season 1" is a sitcom drizzled with acid and punched through with the surreal, where the most mundane activities become freakishly bizarre. Lots of raunchy humor, silly puppets, songs and journeys into other realms -- it's a head-trip, and you'll love every second of it.

It takes place in a mildly run-down zoo called "the Zooniverse," run by the deranged manager Bob Fossil (Rich Fulcher) and with the awkward cream-poet Howard Moon (Julian Barratt) and flamboyant wacky Vince Noir (Noel Fielding) working as zookeepers. The bane of Howard and Vince's existence: the evil and sinister owner Bainbridge.

First off, Bob decides to use nude photos of Howard's "freak" body to blackmail him into fighting a kangaroo. Probable result: death by disembowelment, especially since Howard is a pathetic boxer, and Vince's attempts to toughen him up aren't quite enough. Will true love for Mrs. Gideon inspire Howard to victory, or will Vince's magic dust vision (courtesy of the shaman Naboo) reveal the way to kill-a-roo?

And yeah, it gets weirder after that. Way weirder.

Catalog#D56382. Amazon has the best Pre-Order price at $55.99. Official release date of this special collection is Oct. 13 2009. I'm holding out for this one.

Meanwhile there's Adult Swim and Cartoon Network showing regular Boosh episodes and yes, of course You Tube for a Boosh fix whenever necessary.

AND that's not all......the Boosh are coming to the US! They will be making an appearnace at Comic Con in San Diego July 24th, after first touching down in NY with a scheduled appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon July 22nd!!!! They'll be back to US. I'm hoping for an album, a movie on the big screen and a live US tour!!!!!

Boosh Fans are 'alright!
