Hot on the heels of the news that Ricky Gervais’s cringey alter ego David Brent is taking up his guitar for two concerts at Bloomsbury Theatre later this month, The Mighty Boosh reformed for two gigs at Soho Theatre this week.
The Boosh Band gigs were a warm-up for Jack Black’s Festival Supreme in California next month where duo Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt, and their collaborators Dave Brown and Rich Fulcher, will appear alongside Black’s joke rockers Tenacious D, Demetri Martin, Adam Sandler and Sarah Silverman, among others.
“It was great being back together again”, Brown, aka The Boosh’s Bollo the Ape, tells me. “Although Rich is still in LA. He’ll join us out there. The set is a musical one with comedy links in between; it’s is a mixture of old and new. But with Noel and Julian, there’s always new.”
