The Wiggles are belovedly Aussie as vegemite and kangaroos. But Anthony, Emma and co. better beware, ’cause Irish comedian, Dylan Moran, has a vendetta against the wholesome kiddy band.

You have to be pretty brave or just plain stupid to threaten our skivvy-clad Wiggles and I’m surprised that customs actually let the man back in the country after he joked about coming to Australia for the sole reason of “killing a Wiggle” in 2016.

But yes, he somehow wormed his way back onto our shores and was invited to chat to the Project panel.

In the interview, Tommy Little reminded him about his un-PC joke about the Wiggles demise.

“It’s a question of how to kill them,” he had previously quipped. “Anything that can smile for seven hours and display, no fatigue feels no pain…they have no hearts or blood or anything recognisably human.”

“They’re Up To Something!”

But it appears that Moran, who’s the dad to teens Siobhan and Simon, has “mellowed out” over the last few years and told the Project crew that if he saw a Wiggle now, “I’d threaten them and not actually do anything.”

He did admit though that he still had his doubts about the Wiggly performers, saying that they look like they’re “up to something.”

What Did The Wiggles Do To You???

“Did a Wiggle do something to you?,” Little asked.

“I felt they had an agenda. It was there. You could see it. You knew they were up to other things,” he said, making the studio audience erupt in laughter.

“Don’t trust grown men in skivvies?,” Little added to the comic.

“What’s a skivvy?,” Moran shot back.

In the segment, Moran also talked about his recent decision to stop drinking and smoking.

“It became like a job. That’s honestly what it was like. It was like punching the clock. Here we go (mimes opening a drink) I just got bored, you know.”

  • I actually thought his comments were more in jest. As a parent who has had to listen to The Wiggles and other characters etc. 24/7, I do appreciate sometimes you can wish they were not so ‘poppy’ and ‘excitable’ all the time.

  • If he is serious with that comment (not just joking) he should be deported + Charged with making threats of physical bodily harm. There may have been people with Mental Health problems who saw the interview.

  • We love this comedian! I think what actors say sometimes does come out wrong and their intentions are portrayed how a particular interviewer wants them too. I also think he shouldntve said it however I cant take this too much on board as we are massive fans of his humour.

  • This was worded wrong and he should be apologising.

  • Comedians will do and say anything and everything to get a laugh but, in today’s day and age, he should have worded it differently … but, they just don’t think things through, it is usually spontaneous, what is in their head at the moment and, coming to Australia, he had to find something iconic that his audience could relate to …..

  • I don’t think the words he used there were funny.
