Everly Pregnant Brothers Lyceum Theatre
Offensively hilarious are words I’d use to sum up Sheffield’s Everly Pregnant Brothers.
The band, including lead singer Shaun Doane, artist Pete McKee and Radio Sheffield presenter Toby Foster, played at the Lyceum for the third year running as part of the Last Laugh comedy festival.
And the full house roared with laughter as the brothers gave their unique take on famous songs.
One of the cleanest was right at the end, when the lyrics of Kings of Leon hit Sex On Fire became ‘Me Chip Pan’s on Fire’.
There was ‘Chav World’ instead of Mad World, and Buggered Up Shoulder instead of Buffalo Soldier.
But Depeche Mode’s Just Can’t Get Enough was reworked Sheffield-style into ‘I just can’t get it up’ while many other songs became something completely unprintable.
There was plenty of audience participation, with people clapping and singing along - and even getting up to dance for the last song.
The crowd joked with Toby Foster, chanting terrace style ‘you’re getting sacked in the morning’, after fellow band members suggested he was too offensive for the BBC.
The boys gave good value - well-over two hours - and there was barely a dry eye at the end, from tears of laughter.
