SAT 5/29

"Journey of The Childmen: The Mighty Boosh On Tour"
at Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St, Brookline

I'm not sure if a concert film is the appropriate introduction to "The Mighty Boosh", however I think it's frickin' spectacular for its dry, absurd British humor -- heaping with mysticism to explain many of the bizarre situations.

Special pre-show: "Mighty Boosh celebration and costume contest"

Save $3 if you have purchase "Book of the Boosh" from Brookline Booksmith and bring receipt.
