Presenting Ryanair - the Musical!

23 August 2010

Not sure what to make of this: a lady who could well be your mother singing on stage about budget airlines. We've never heard of Fascinating Aida, but the fact the trio are English but affect an Irish accent for this song (and the reference to charging for the toilet on-board) suggests their source material is Ryanair:

Hardly Bill Hicks, but excellent use of 'feck', 'fecking', 'feckers' and 'feckity' through out, however.

Watch til the end to see what the Middle England audience think of Fascinating Aida; it's clearly the sort of act that'll have female readers of the Daily Mail moist in moments ("it's never to late to be famous, having a roast with Callum Best and both of the Proclaimers"). Thanks to avid Bitterwallet reader Olly for the tip!

    Um, haven't they been around since the 80's?

    Fecking Awesome!

    They certainly have. But the Bitterwallet chaps rarely come out from under their stone.
  • Theo C.
    and the tall one on the left used to be a bloke.

    The funny thing is you just know the people in the audience are exactly the sort of people that fly budget airlines to their second home which is just outside a town which is just outside a city where the airline says they fly to, although in reality they fly somewhere else. Normal people wouldn't pay to watch crap like that would they?

    They've been around since the 70s, in fact. And the Irish accents aren't fake - Dilly Keane, the lead, is Irish. Their audience is a bit Daily Mail but that's not entirely their fault. They were doing alternative comedy standup before it was invented, but never broke through to an audience beyond middle-class theatregoers. And they do a very good job of putting the boot into RyanAir, so hooray for them.
