“I can think of no higher praise for The Mighty Book of Boosh than to say it is almost as good as a mid-70s Goodies annual. It has lots of pictures, and is shiny.”

“Every Boosh connoisseur will have their most surrealist rib tickled with a glow stick made of glitterball fluff. And that’s just the gags… Visually, the book is ostentatiously beautiful… glossy and aesthetically sumptous.”

“If Salvador Dali, Dr Seuss and Douglas Adams had ever cracked open a bottle of absinthe and written a sitcom, it might have turned out like this.”
radio Times

“If there had ever been a collaboration between David Bowie, Anthony Burgess and Maurice Sendak, author of Where the Wild Things Are, it might have turned out something like this.”

Julian Barratt & Noel Fielding

Fielding and Barratt conceived of THE MIGHTY BOOSH whilst working on Stewart Lee’s Edinburgh show KING DONG vs. MOBY DICK in which they played a giant penis and a whale respectively. Barrett and Fielding took THE MIGHTY BOOSH to the Edinburgh Festival in 1998, and won the Perrier Award for Best Newcomer. They followed this triumph with two further shows at the festival, ARCTIC BOOSH in 1999, and AUTOBOOSH in 2000, before being commissioned to write a radio series for BBC Radio 4. Like many other successful British comedies such as ALAN PARTRIDGE, THE LEAGUE OF GENTLEMEN and LITTLE BRITAIN, THE MIGHTY BOOSH made the transition from radio to television in 2004, when an eight part television series - also called THE MIGHTY BOOSH - was commissioned by the BBC. Series One was broadcast to critical acclaim in 2004, Series Two followed in 2005, and Series Three aired in 2007. In 2006 Fielding and Barratt returned to the stage with live show which toured the country. They will embark on a second nationwide tour, of over seventy-five dates, in autumn 2008.Fielding and Barratt have also been commissioned to write a full-length feature film by the BBC.
