Watch Fat White Family tear The Letterman Show a new one

For many viewers of stateside chat show Letterman, the escapades of Fat White Family were no doubt wholly unfamiliar as they sat down for their weekly fix of drip-fed celebrity chat and controversy avoidance.

But all that has changed since Lias Saoudi and co rocked up to bring the latest episode to a close with a typically chaotic rendition of ‘Why Is It Raining in Your Mouth?’.

It’s a performance we at Far Out at least had been waiting for with baited breathe – especially given the fact that this was the first time Fat Whites have appeared on US network TV.

Appearing on a bill that also included squeaky clean Hollywood actress Kelly Ripa, the Brixton rockers were always going to be a surprising shot in the arm and reaction has been pretty much polarised.

But even without talisman Saul Adamczewski who succumbed to ‘passport issues’ on the way through customs, we reckon they nailed it.

Don’t just take out word for it though, watch this enthralling performance that was beamed to millions of American homes right here.
