It’s a double dose of Booshdom on the BBC tonight, as three stars of the Booshniverse appear across the channels from 10pm.
There may be another two weeks before The Boosh Band take on the music of Frank Zappa at Camden Roundhouse, but this evening, you can see Noel Fielding in another musical role as the returning team captain in the new series of Nevermind The Buzzcocks.
Noel, who replaced Bill Bailey as a team captain for series 23 of the show, has taken up the role once more much to the delight of his fans and of ourselves here at TVO.
The new series airs tonight on BBC2 at 10pm and guests include friend of the Boosh Paul Foot, who we reported about earlier, taking a seat on Noel’s team and with guest host Mark Ronson filling the void left by Simon Amstell’s departure, and a string of fantastic guest presenters lined up for the rest of the run.

Not only that, but straight afterwards at 10:30 on BBC3 sees the return of Russell Howard’s Good News – the topical stand-up show which frequently features Zimbani star Colin Hoult in its sketch material. Hoult is also set to appear at FULCHFEST next month alongside a number of Booshy stars – so he’s fast becoming one to watch.
As usual, both of these shows will be available on iPlayer after broadcast for 7 days – and if we’d love to hear what you think of them both!
