The Mighty Boosh is a popular comedy troupe that featured comedians in a television show, radio series and even several stage performances. Starting in the late 90s and continuing until 2013, the troupe has had a large following for its crazy antics and hilarious characters. One of the most popular characters from the show is Old Gregg, who is portrayed by comedian Noel Fielding.
Old Gregg is known for his lack of species and intriguing interests. He lives in a cave, known as Gregg’s Place, at the bottom of the Black Lake and tries to keep himself entertained with watercolors. His manners may not be perfect, but all he really wants is a friend to hang out with.

Old Gregg Cosplay Costumes
Old Gregg was played by Noel Fielding, originally creating him as a one-off character for the TV show, but also taking him to the stage in 2006. There are many rumors over Old Gregg’s species and gender, but not a whole lot has been confirmed. Some say he’s half man half fish, while others say he’s more man than fish. Either way, this outfit is great for Cosplayers who really want to go all out with their costume.
Old Gregg isn’t the best at being around a lot of people, so you should probably call up a few friends to come along. Get them to come as other characters like Vince Noir, Bob Fossil, Naboo or Old Gregg’s love, Howard Moon.

About Old Gregg
Old Gregg is a fictional character played by Noel Fielding in the TV show The Mighty Boosh. Not much is known about Old Gregg, but it is said that he is over 1,200 years old and has a cannibalistic nature. Is he a man or a fish? Or both? He lives below the Black Lake and seems to have been alone for a long time. His lack of human interaction has led to his odd, and sometimes maniacal, behavior.
Old Gregg likes include funk music, Baileys Irish Cream, watercolors, singing and, of course, Howard Moon. His cave has a cocktail bar that is always stocked with Baileys and small disco lights. His attachment to people can be seen as extreme, but after being stuck in a cave alone for years, he’s just happy to see a friendly face. Old Gregg may not look entirely human, but he sure enjoys hanging out with them.
