Internet stars meet their public for an interactive tour
If you've never heard of Dan Howell and Phil Lester, chances are you were born in or before the mid-1990s and have no teenage people kicking about your house. And before you go thinking that Dan and Phil might be some short of Everly Brothers tribute band, stop thinking that and instead imagine a world where skinny-jeaned, LEGO-haired people run the world. Dan and Phil would be their leaders with Russell Kane as the godfather of whatever it is that they do.
These 'YouTube sensations' came to some of the public's attention around 2013 with their Sunday evening Radio 1 request show which featured the actual playing of music alongside such streamed visual larks as the boys wrapping each other up in clingfilm. Their comedic japes included Sorry I Don't Know How To Internet where senior adults' inability to work modern technology was ruthlessly mocked, or #FoodFails where anyone's inability to prepare a square meal was ruthlessly mocked, and earned the pair a Sony Golden Headphones Award.
But now, they've come out from behind their mics to unleash the Interactive Introverts tour on us which promises an epic interactive experience of 'rants, roasts, battles, stories and surprises that will make you laugh, cry, and cringe'.
Clyde Auditorium, Glasgow, Sun 6 May; Usher Hall, Edinburgh, Sat 12 May and touring.
