About Foil, Arms and Hog:

Foil Arms and Hog are Ireland’s top comedy sketch group. Called ‘Pure Brilliant’ by Tommy Tiernan, the group have starred on RTÉ’s the Savage Eye, have over 4 million hits on YouTube and sold out the Edinburgh comedy festival five years running. In 2014, they embarked on a World Tour taking in Chicago, San Francisco, LA and Adelaide and culminating in a sold out show at Dublin’s Vicar Street. Their act is a unique blend of sketch comedy and stand-up with wickedly twisted characters, unpredictable scenes and high energy performances. Not to be missed.
