Day #55: Crystal Fighters – “I Love London”
Philippe recently tipped me off to the new British sketch comedy series, Noel Fielding’s Luxury Comedy, which is basically the Mighty Boosh cast minus Julian Barratt (aka, Howard Moon). Unfortunately, it’s not very good (all first season eps are currently on You Tube), and I wonder if Noel’s recent detox didn’t kill some creative circuit somewhere because I feel like I just watched a modern kind of Magical Mystery Tour. That same kind of WTF weirdness, but done on an actual budget. Still, there is a silver lining for starved American Boosh fans: Netflix recently added episodes from Matt Berry’s (aka, Dixon Bainbridge) and Richard Fulcher’s (aka, Bob Fossil) surreal sketch comedy, Snuff Box on Instant.
