Distinctive for their plastic bag masks they always wear, musical duo Blindboy Boat Club and Mr Chrome started their career at the turn of the new millennium as prank phone callers in their native Limerick, and moved into comedy hip-hop a few years later.

In October 2010 they began a weekly slot on RTE 2’s ‘Republic of Telly’ – and released their debut single ‘Horse Outside’, which became a viral internet hit (more than 14.5 million Youtube views) and then a genuine chart success. The following year C4 commissioned them for a series of Comedy Blaps – online shorts – and they were named Best Irish Act at the entertainment.ie awards. The Rubberbandits also won best music and variety act at the 2012 Chortle Awards and recently signed to MTV USA.
Fresh from their sell out shows at London’s Soho Theatre, they bring their new show ‘Loot Roosters’ to Theatre Royal on Friday, March 30th so expect brand new songs and bizarre comedy. The shows starts at 8pm. Tickets are priced €26 and are available from the Box Office(051-874402) and www.theatreroyal.ie/events.
