The Boosh Are Coming! The Boosh Are Coming!
The latest British talent invasion picked up pace last week as cult sensation The Mighty Boosh buzzed through New York on their way to Comic-Con. The group's show has been a worldwide hit on stage and on the BBC, and now it's a recent addition to Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. Their appeal and fan base is definitely growing, whether or not it'll be enough to make them a crossover hit in the U.S. still remains to be seen, but in the meantime founders Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding are certainly enjoying the ride.
I got a chance to speak with the Boosh duo the day after their rockstar reception at an event in NYC. We talked comedy, influences, horses, and, of course, Harry Potter.
