Fergus's Wedding came and Fergus's Wedding went. Very little has been ever said about it's existence and rarely do I come across people who actually saw the programme. Oddly enough its writers and producers including Michael McElhatton, who plays the lead role, rarely refer to the show in the interviews I've read, instead opting to talk about other projects like Paths to Freedom and recent sequel to that Spin the Bottle, both of which are very impressive but personally I feel they don't quite strike the funny bone the way Fergus's Wedding does.
The show centers around Fergus who is getting organised for his forthcoming wedding to an English girl he met through a personal column. Along the way Fergus has to deal with his family, his disaster of a best mate Tony 'Tones' nagging him to be bestman, his business 'Fergichinos', the football team he coaches, his preferred Best man dying and leaving him in financial disarray in the process, his fathers desire to become a woman, his hip which is giving him 'ferocious jip', a super bossy wedding planner and the swinging club he and his bride-to-be run from their house which they have vowed not to participate in themselves again until they are married.
Fergus's Wedding is the best thing to come out of Ireland ever (in the comedy front), in my opinion and you're very close to a red card if you disagree with me!
