Mighty boosh is just one of those shows i cant stand.

I really cannot see or find

The whiteness of the tundra or whatever the people say funny.

It would be better if there was some depth into the jokes and not just random stupid phrases.

In conclusion i dont like that kind of comedy.

I hate the mighty boosh. It's just really not funny. Bring back the old greats like Porridge and Fawlty Towers and I'll be a happy man (even though I've seen them all and probably have them all on DVD anyway)

That show never really amused me...

I could hardly find any comedy in there. It has no depth and is just plain stupid. As the person above said.
Its just comedy made up of random stupid phrases.

I like some more intelligent humor...

I've never seen the show, but I did catch a clip of Old Greg on youtube. That **** was hilarious.

One of my favourite shows. I do definitely see the point about it being random and lacking depth, but it really is one of the best comedies around at the moment.

I love the show, except the Old Gregg episode. Never really got why everyone loves that episode. Nanageddon was way funnier.

Check out Tony Harrison

Yeah Nanageddon is my favourite.

Either that or the Milky Joe one.

The biggest WTF moment, I find, is where a person in a giant Naan bread costume walks in and they say "No, not you Naan bread"

I love it because it's so weird. The people here bitching about it just have a different sense of humour.

No, it was. Trust me - they're obsessed with the Mighty Boosh. They're what killed it for us at school. They are obsessed.

You have to understand that comedy has changed. BBC3 comedy is aimed at teens and young adults.

There are many types of comedy. The Mighty Boosh is surreal, in the same way as Monty Python and League of Gentlemen. There's also naturalistic ones like Fawlty Towers and Peep Show. Then there's other things which sort of fit both (Scrubs, The Simpsons) It all depends on your sense of humour. I like both.

It's **** and all the scene girls like it just because of Noel Fielding, who is normally quite funny but Might Boosh is terrible.


It's like typical pretentious film student "surrealist" comedy where they would stick a box on someones head and make them say "Teapot teapot? Teapot!" and all piss themselves laughing.
#28
I thought I was the only one who couldn't stand it, everyone at the school I just left loved it. They even redid Old Greg in the Leaver's Assembly. Usually I'm a fan of surreal comedy, I love Monty Python and League of Gentle, for example, but I really can't stand this. Though I'd fuck Howard.

Actually that reminds of the very few parts that have ever managed to raise a bemused smile from me. The one in The Hitchhiker's Thumb (or whatever it's called) when Howard puts on the tape and keeps saying 'Okay, okay... after this there's an awesome bass solo...' *repeating line* 'Soon...no, not now...' *turns tape over* 'Soon...' *bass lines comes in repeating itself* 'Ah! There it is!'
The other is the Nightmare of Milky Joe, when Howard says 'Oh come on, the man's an arse!' when talking about the coconut.

I don't know why I don't like it more, usually it's the kind of thing I like.

This scenester, obsessed with boosh obviously, was going on about how normal comedy was always useless and only surreal stuff is good, the more surreal the better, so I sent her an episode of Jam and she said it was **** (and Jam is pretty much the most surreal comedy out there, probably one of the most surreal TV programs of all time). I then sent her a bit of Flying Circus and she said "That's not surreal thats just old man comedy."
#30
...Old man comedy?

Kindly go punch her in the face for me.

Yeah


I can forgive her for not liking Jam, because that is surreal to the point of not being directly funny, but calling herself a surreal comedy fan and NOT liking python? Nonsense.

A example of Jam

XD Can't wait. I have all the Brass Eye episodes along with the special on Virgin Central On Demand TV.

The problem with surreal comedy is you get a lot of people who watch it and are just so pretentious. 'Oh, yes, I can appreciate this. You can't, but trust me, it's hilarious. Ah hah hah hah. It's so surreal.'
