US shutdown hits The Boosh

Show cancelled over visa delay

The Mighty Boosh have had to cancel a show in America – because of the government shutdown.

The situation meant Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt were not able to get their visas in time for their show scheduled for the Largo Theater in Los Angeles tonight.
