We here at Tattoodo value nothing higher than absurdity. That’s why 10 years after the series’ end, we are still watching The Mighty Boosh. We’re hard pressed to think of a TV series that’s as out there and hilarious. In honor of the series’ insane level of rewatchability, we’re showing our love for it with these absurd Mighty Boosh tattoos.
The story of The Mighty Boosh starts in jolly old England back in 1998. Noel Fielding and Julian Barrat were two young comedians who had recently met and discovered they shared very peculiar comedic tastes. They quickly joined forces and developed the characters of zookeepers Howard and Vince. They slowly built an ensemble by adding Rich Fulcher, Richard Ayoade, and Noel’s brother Michael.
Christening themselves The Mighty Boosh after Michael’s childhood haircut, the troop produced three highly successful stage shows between 1998 and 2000. These led to a Mighty Boosh radio series (called simply, The Boosh) in 2001, which led to a BBC television series in 2004.
It was on the small screen that the group found wide fame. Lasting for three seasons, The Mighty Boosh split the sides of comedy fans around the globe with some of the most absurd comedy to ever be broadcast. The wide variety of wacky characters are what really made the show. Though Howard and Vince were hilarious on their own, it was their interactions with ludicrous characters like Bollo the gorilla, The Spirit of Jazz, The Crack Fox, Old Greg, and The Moon itself that raised the series to a level of sublime genius.
Let’s face it, either you’ve seen the show and know exactly what we’re talking about or you’re sitting there scratching your head. No matter which boat you’re in, the entire series is streaming on Hulu for your enjoyment. If you need a quick introduction, this best of series one clip should suffice.
Hopefully by now you’re well acquainted with the wacky absurdity and are in the proper mindset to appreciate these Mighty Boosh tattoos that adorn the most hardcore fans the world over. Just take a look and fondly remember your favorite moments from the show.
Any one of these Mighty Boosh tattoos just makes us want to relive the pinnacle of the first decade of the 21st century’s comedic offerings. So if you need us, we’ll be re-watching the show until we die.
