Sydney brothers Theo and Nathan Saidden will bring their new stage
show Talk sh*t and get hit to Canberra later this month.
It began as a game between two
But after an incredible 70 million
YouTube views and more than 430,000
subscribers, Sydney's Theo and
Nathan Saidden knew their online
comedy series Superwog was a hit.
After a run of sold-out shows in
Sydney and Melbourne, the pair will
present their brand new stage show
Talk sh*t and get hit at the Canberra
Theatre Centre on June 19.
Before their social media exploits,
the Saidden brothers adored
mimicking characters in their lives.
"We would impersonate our family
members and our parents fighting,"
"They used to fight a lot. That
would kind of make it fun instead of
having to deal with the serious side of
having your parents fight."
Superwog began online in 2008 but

mountain for us to climb," he said.

They dream of a feature length film
but don't want to lose sight of their
loyal Australian fanbase.
"The dream is to make a comedy
movie," Theo said.
We are all so obsessed with
American comedy, and it's very good,
but it would be nice to produce
something that everyone in Australia
The 27-year-old, who is a solicitor
by day, said Superwog navigated
sensitive terrain by teasing apart
cultural stereotypes but the praise for
their work far outweighed the
backlash. The clips explore everything
from classroom comebacks, weddings
and tradies through juxtaposed scenes
and lively characterisations.
"Some people don't even like the
title we use -- the difference between
wogs and Aussies -- in the sense that
we are all Aussies," he said.
"But then people come and tell us
this bit is so true' or my mum is
exactly like that', even the Aussie kids.
I don't think it would have been so
popular if people didn't agree with
what we were putting up."
Superwog will show at Canberra
Theatre Centre from 7.30pm on
June 19. Tickets: $39.90 to $49.90,

ALBUM: WHY MAKE SENSE/ARTIST: HOT CHIP
Nod to retro dance scene retains charm, playfulness
Formed in 2000 by its lead singer and
keyboardist, Alexis Taylor, and main
composer Joe Goddard, Hot Chip have
constructed another album looking
back at 1980s and 1990s dance music.
There's even a salute to the 1970s
with Started Right. It features clavinet
licks and stop-start drums which recall
Stevie Wonder and the album's opener
Huarache Lights is a groove and funk-

This is another strong album for Hot
Chip -- like the previous five before it,
it sounds sophisticated and intelligent.
It sounds like dance music with
brains: hand-played keyboards, guitars
and drums provide a warmth and

This is because Why Make Sense
retains Hot Chip's subtle charms and
sense of playfulness.
This is a band in touch with its

But the key to Hot Chip's success is
its inherent ability to craft well-
