Toy Show Moved To 3 Arena Due To Ticket Demand


WITH tickets reportedly changing hands for 6-figure sums, RTÉ bosses have taken the unprecedented decision to move this Friday’s Late Late Toy Show to the 3 Arena after the broadcaster revealed over 84 million people requested tickets, WWN can exclusively reveal.

“We were nailed on for 5 nights in Croke Park, but you know how the locals are, so we’re settling for the one night out in the Point,” confirmed head of Toy Show Operations Janet O’Byrne.

The annual appointment viewing for the majority of Ireland will see some 12,000 lucky punters get a chance to watch some children test out overpriced toys that they won’t get to bring home, alleviating some of the black market demand for tickets.

“Some lad from Cavan had three tickets up on Ebay for €100,000 each, and I was half thinking about it, but now there’s some extra tickets floating about in the 3 Arena, I’ll be sorted,” explained one adult man we spoke to.

Hype for this year’s Toy Show has outstripped all previous years as rumours persists that Trainspotting director Danny Boyle will direct the opening segment of the show.

“He also did the opening ceremony in London don’t forget, but yeah we were impressed with his whole babies on the ceiling routine,” O’Byrne shared, “it’s the hottest ticket in town we’ve had to say no to requests for freebies from The Pope, Bono, Brad Pitt and Taylor Swift”.

The Late Late Toy Show bucks the trend of RTÉ shows in that it remains the one show a year that is ‘worth the licence fee’ according to the public despite its astronomical budget of €144 million.

RTÉ have also confirmed that they have partnered with NASA to beam a transmission of the Toy Show into space to ensure any possible alien races also get to experience the joy of watching it.
