Foil Arms & Hogg at The Source – deliriously funny, it’s sketch comedy at its best

Dubbed by the critics as a ‘powerhouse of sketch comedy’, Foil Arms and Hog have recently completed a World tour, have over 4 million hits on Youtube, are starring on Jason Byrne’s upcoming 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 story was reported in the Huffington Post in addition to several Irish Nationals, and was the No.1 up-voted item on worldwide for over 24 hours.


Rowan Atkinson came to FA&H’s show this year in Edinburgh, even emailing 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!
