IN THEIR new show, The Mighty Boosh, Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding (below) invite you join them "on a crunchy journey to a light- blue forest" where you will encounter such characters as Jaffoo the Jam Lizard and Electric Terry, the Crinkle-Cut Cowboy. If lovable buffoonery is your bag, then check out their Edinburgh Festival warm-up.

Hen and Chickens, London N1 (0171-704 2001) 9.30pm

Arrive at the interval of New Edna - The Spectacle because the first-half pastiches is a bit of a let-down. After that, the show picks up as Edna gets to do what she does best: humiliate the audience.

Haymarket Theatre Royal, London SW1 (0171-930 8800) 7.30pm
