You have passed the ball test! One of the most obscure characters in The mighty Boosh. One of the psychedelic monks and just an overall weird guy! But another favourite character!
Apart form the fact I love the mighty boosh and all the characters. I had to create this one as I love Old Rudy and the psychedelic monks with the doors in their head.
This is the episode he is from and the first time they meet, well Vince Noir meets Rudi! : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLbhkM0LaYI
For more information on Rudy see below:
Rudi van DiSarzio is portrayed by Rich Fulcher and Julian Barratt. He was originally created for the 1998 stage show, The Mighty Boosh, and also appeared in an outtake for the “Jazz” episode of the 2001 radio series The Boosh, both portrayed by Rich Fulcher. He was then portrayed by Julian Barratt in the 2004 episode “Jungle”, and the 2005 episode “The Priest and the Beast” of the TV series. He last appeared in the 2006 stage show, Boosh Live.
Rudi is a High Priest of the Order of the Psychedelic Monks and plays guitar and sings in Rudi and Spider.He and Spider Dijon are Bongo Brothers.Rudi and Spider quarrel often, but are very close despite having starkly different personalities. Rudi’s behaviour and attitude is extremely puritanical; he thinks of alcohol and women as “distractions” (in stark contrast to the animalistic nature of his fellow band member, Spider Dijon), and even went so far as to say that he considered all women “strange and evil”.He is also suspected of having a sexual relationship with his guitar, which he calls Miranda, though Rudi has always maintained that this was a misunderstanding on his wife’s part (“I was naked, it was dark, I was changing a string, I became entangled.”) Whenever he is asked for his name, Rudi’s initial response will often be “I go by many names…” followed by a list of radically odd and random names.Some of his many names include “Shatoon, Bringer of Corn”, “Mickey Nine, The Dreamweaver”, “Photoshop”, “Trenu, The Boiler”, “Marjorie Keek”, “Mystery Man”, “The Shadow Dweller”, “Diviner of Mysteries”, “Rudi the Pruney”, “Miraculous Mark”, “Domino, the Bounty Hunter”, “Clive” and “Cillit Bang”, He is often called “Peppercorn” by the Dutch. A similar character, Howard’s uncle Pedro, appears in the radio episode “Tundra”, also claiming to go by many names.
In Jungle and some other appearances he has a tiny (puppet) body and he appears attached to a mobile backdrop; in most appearances he is of normal size and wears a long purple robe. In all of his appearances on stage or TV, Rudy has large buck teeth, browned skin (it is not clear what ethnicity is meant to be) and an enormous afro haircut with a door in it, called the door of Kukundu, that can open to take people on bizarre psychedelic trips. He claims to have earned his door by becoming spiritually enlightened as a monk. Rudi is allergic to wheat.
