Man, I love this show. It's like a kid's show (musical numbers, people in furry suits, important life lessons) but for adults (bizarre sexual themes, violence, drug abuse).

Here's the musical number from one of my favorite episodes, Eels:

(Video won't embed, hence the link. And, no, this ain't no chimp-roll... this is for reals.)

I cannot recommend this show highly enough!

It is super awesomely weird.

Still Noel Fielding playing the vampire goth in the IT crowd was my favorite part of his..

The show is awesome. There are several series.

If you like it you may also want to check out Spaced which is similar, though with less magic type-stuff.

Spaced is written and acted in by Simon Pegg, who you may have seen in Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz (both great UK films) and quite a few US films which aren't so good (Run Fatboy Run, Big Nothing). He has also had bit parts in some really big films like Mission Impossible 3.

He is also in the new Star Trek (no idea how good it is).

The Boosh has rather more macabre stuff (The Crack Fox anyone?) and yet seems more childish. Spaced was on TV a few years ago now and was vastly under-appreciated when it first came out. It is certainly the more adult of the two and at the same time the more cuddly. Now I am off for my Rough Ramblers meeting.

Oh, God, you had to go there. That episode was downright nightmarish. I swear, the Crack Fox was all kinds of wrong.
