The Mighty Boosh Cast

Naboo and Bollo head off to the Head Shaman’s stag-do weekend with the rest of the Council, leaving Howard and Vince in charge of the ‘Nabootique’. The two friends decide to hold a ‘Battle of the Sales’, betting on the success of Howard’s elbow patches vs. Vince’s ‘Celebrity Indie Radar’ device. Vince’s tracker quickly proves a sell-out success, but all Howard attracts is the attention of a dubious widow, Eleanor (“Hellooooooooooo!”). While Vince leaves to try and tag Pete Neon, the lead singer of the ‘Neon Needles’, Howard receives a visit from the evil Cockney Hitcher, who wees in his face, subjects him to a nightmare ballet inside his hat with Elsie the Queen of Eels, and then demands protection money from him. Under threat of another eel-attack unless he can find a thousand Euros by midnight, Howard turns to Vince for help; but his friend has already squandered the cash he made, so Howard has just one option left: he must prostitute himself to Eleanor…
