FATHER TED GOES DOWN!
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I MEANT 'UNDER'
FATHER TED IS OFF TO AUSTRALIA
The hugely popular TEDFEST is going global and will now have another one of it's festivals kicking off in the land of scary reptiles, hairy jumpy animals with huge feet and ill-propotioned tiny hands, and Alf Stewart. The event is being franchised as part of a global development plan, with Australia being the first country to establish an overseas version of the annual celebration of the 1990s television series Father Ted.
Tedfest Oz will take place in the remote bush town of Parkes, NSW over the Easter weekend on 2010. Parkes' last claim to fame was in 1969 when the town's satellite dish broadcast television pictures of the Apollo moon landings. Seems appropriate that 40years after the Moon landing we now have Ted landing!
We had the man who started it all off on the show this morning, Peter Phillips and he is looking forward to eventually bringing Ted all over the world.
