UPDATED: Could Glee be banned in the UK?
Share This Article:
It sounds like a joke – but a court ruling made today could see Schuester et al permanently removed from our screens. How could this most unexpected of situations occur, you might ask? Well, it turns out that there was already a Glee Club operating in the UK an entire decade before everyone’s favourite chirpy Ohioan high schoolers hit our screens in 2009 – in fact, there are four of them. Not surprisingly, the Glee Clubs of Oxford, Nottingham, Birmingham and Cardiff, run by businessman Mark Tughan, have absolutely no connection whatsoever to the Fox TV hit. In fact, they describe themselves as “award-winning comedy clubs and live venues... with nearly 20 years experience of running some of the UK’s most cherished live venues.” Unfortunately patrons have been getting a tad confused, and have taken to avoiding the Glee Clubs out of fear that they’ll find sarcastic, track-suited PE teachers, questionable cover versions and relentless positivity inside – rather than the night out they were looking for. We can see their point.
