CHRIS LILLEY TURNS HMV OXFORD STREET ON IT'S HEAD IN ANGRY BOYS DVD SIGNING FRENZY!
September 9, 2011 | Australian TV News
Whilst his Angry Boys show received mixed reviews in Australia, the show performed extremely well on UK channel BBC3 and Lilley himself remains as popular as ever. So popular in fact that he has just made history at HMV’s flagship store in London (and the biggest music shop in Europe), greeting hundreds of passionate fans in the biggest DVD signing the store has ever hosted. Lilley spoke to fans in a marathon four hour signing session at HMV on Oxford Street. Over a thousand people came from across the country, some queuing for over 6 hours to see him. Lilley showed his appreciation by staying long after the store had closed in order to see everyone.
The following night Lilley performed to a sold-out crowd under the guise of the controversial hip-hop sensation S.mouse, the American rapper character from his ABC TV show Angry Boys. Tickets sold out within half an hour of release, and fans showed their enthusiasm by dressing as their favourite character. The packed crowd slapped their elbows along to all his classic hits, such as “Animal Zoo”, “Obama” and the hit-single “Slap My Elbow”.
Celebrity guests in attendance included Doctor Who’s Karen Gillan and League Of Gentleman star Reece Shearsmith.
