Dubbed by the critics as a ‘powerhouse of sketch comedy’ Foil Arms and Hog have recently completed a world tour, have over four million hits on Youtube, are starring in Jason Byrne’s up-coming TV3 show ‘Snaptastic’ and have sold out six years running at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
In addition the lads recently won a comedy award at the Adelaide Fringe Festival and are working on a sitcom for BBC3.
The group’s YouTube sketch ‘Hashtag’ went viral when members of the online community accused Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake of stealing their idea.
Rowan Atkinson came to Foil Arms & Hogg’s show this year in Edinburgh and even emailed afterwards to express his gratitude. On another night Tommy Tiernan bought a ticket and was given a terrible seat up the front where the lads couldn’t take their eyes off him!
In early 2014 the group embarked on a world tour beginning in London and taking in Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Adelaide amongst others, culminating in a sell out show at the 1000 seater venue, Vicar Street in Dublin.
With backgrounds in stand-up and acting, the trio have developed a sketch show format with a difference: a refreshingly informal style that involves and engages their audience. Be prepared for plenty of laughs and mayhem on the night, anything could happen!
Don’t miss the show on Friday, March 13th at 8pm.
