ED2012 Comedy Review: Totally Wired! Reunion Farewell (Welfare) Tour – A Sperm’s Tail And Other Tales – Free (Totally Wired! Totally Free!)

By | Published on Friday 31 August 2012

Ireland’s self-proclaimed ”oldest and least successful boyband” had an almost full house the night I went, including some returning girlie teen fans and screeching ladies. The show was a little cringey in parts, and it did feel like watching ”yer uncle on stage”, as Lorcan Hughes said; aware of this, Totally Wired sing songs like ”Mum And Dad Still Have Sex” to a hysterical audience. Gems about the crazy shit in the middle aisle at Lidl, gentle sucking and sex faces should give an idea of what is going on here. There were no knickers flung at the stage as far as I know, but I think this boyband/manband/Dadband can score “least successful” off the blurb.

Laughing Horse @ Captain Taylor’s Coffee House, 19-26 Aug, 6.45pm.
