A while ago, we lost the 6 counties. Not in a “ah crap, I’ve left my bag and the 6 counties on the bus” kind of lost, more of a lost in a war kind of way.
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.

You can stalk Brian online on his Twitter and Instagram Too.
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.
The crazy Irishman that is Frank Cronin has decided to walk a staggering 500 miles from San Fran to LA.
As if the challenge wasn’t tough enough, he’s making himself sleep outside every single night. He’ll be attempting to gig along the way and is trying to raise money to help the homelessness crisis there.
I’m doing a weekly check in with him to make sure he doesn’t die and to see exactly how tough of a challenge it’s going to be. Sunday nights, around 10:30pm on FM104 you can hear how he is getting on.
