The Mighty Boosh was created by Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding and originally aired on on BBC3 from 2004-2007. Adult Swim began airing the series in 2009. The Old Gregg skit was from the Second Series episode titled The Legend of Old Gregg. It's ridiculously quotable and probably one of my favorite British things ever.
To set up the skit, Howard (Barratt) and Vince (Noel Fielding) travel to Black Lake and hear of a legendary tale of a horrible creature in the lake. Howard goes fishing and fishes up a man-fish named Old Gregg. The rest is a weird and amazing story that can only be seen, not described.
I just don't know what it is that makes The Mighty Boosh so hilarious, but it's definitely worth a watch or two, or forty. I love the Moon, who is a recurring "character" on the show. It's hilarious!
