There is a place in the United States of America called Knob Lick. It’s a small town, with not a lot in it, but we found one of their churches.
Because in fairness, if you’re in a place called Knob Lick, you need as much God as you can get.
Following on from the huge success of the Tara Murray Scare Cam Vol 1, I decided to branch out and involve a few more people from around the office.
I’m not sure it fits in with the inclusiveness policy, but any small moves forward is progress in my book.
An absolute pleasure to host FM104’s The Gig this year. A huge amount raised for the ISPCC and Childline and insanely good performances from all of the acts.
Gavin James was headlining and was joined by Wild Youth, Chasing Abbey, Soulé, Wyvern Lingo, Craig Cooney and of course the legend that was Frank Jez on the decks for the night.
Thank you if you were there, all the money goes directly towards the charity and all of the acts, production staff and venue are given up for free to help make a big of an impact as possible.
Irish comedian Brian Gallagher was my guest on this week’s episode of My Worst Gig. He shared a beautiful story about gigging in small Irish town that were apparently a little bit racist. Which must have been awkward.
Brian has done the Vodafone Comedy Festival and comedy tent at Electric Picnic and runs the Riff Raff comedy club in the Chelsea Drug Store too.
He’s also a regular contributor to the hugely successful TRY channel on YouTube.

So Emma Nolan, who does the 10-3 show on FM104 was desperately looking for tickets to this years Electric Picnic.
Understandable in fairness. It’s an insanely good gig and always sells out within minutes.
She put up on her Instagram story that she was looking for tickets and that she’d be fairly upset and might die from the FOMO if she didn’t get them.
Seeing this, I quickly messaged her asking “Do you need electric picnic tickets?!”, planting a seed of possibility that would become crucial to pulling this wool over her eyes.
Anyway, a few moments later I called and this is what happened:
Cruel I know. But also rather funny. And good news is I believe she got tickets in the end to the festival anyway.

So, as you know, there are a number of rude place names in Ireland. Muff, Nobber and Hackballscross come to mind first.
There are also a number of towns spread out across the world with equally hilarious names. Thankfully, some people who make maps got bored one day and decided to create one that shows about 300 of the rudest place names in the world. Hilarious.
