HELP THE HARDY BUCKS STEAL DUNDALK!
News has just reached our desks that those perennial chancers, the maverick rapscallions of the Hardy Bucks are making their Dundalk debut at the Spirit Store, on Saturday 12th May.
Hardy Bucks is an comedy media series, filmed in mockumentary style and following the fictional exploits of a group of young men living somewhere in small-town Ireland. It started out as a series of largely improvised online episodes, revolving around outrageous characters like Eddie Durkan and 'Frenchtoast' O'Toole. A six-part webisode series went on to win the 2009 'Storyland' competition held by Irish national broadcaster RTE Television from a total of 122 applications.
Several series followed and the boys have also completed their very own Christmas special for RTE. The Hardy Bucks Movie was released by Universal Pictures in Feb 2013, achieving Box Office No 1 on its opening weekend and becoming the most successful Irish film of 2013.
The programme has been compared to 'Trailer Park Boys', a Canadian mockumentary, with Chris Tordoff (aka The Viper) citing that show as an influence. Hardy Bucks is filmed on location in Swinford, Co Mayo, and features several locals as extras and can also be compared to 'Curb Your Enthusiasm', with the characters given the liberty to improvise around the plot lines and dialogue to create the heady mix that makes the show so distinctive and different to any other show ever attempted on Irish TV.
The Hardy Bucks show at the Spirit Store, on Saturday 12th May is their first appearance in Dundalk - so get ready to be jousted into a realm of outrageous humour wielded by the highest order of craic merchants on the Emerald Isle!
