Foil Arms and Hog are an Irish sketch comedy group comprised of university mates Sean Finegan, Sean Flanagan and Conor McKenna. They have 170k YouTube subscribers and 100 million YouTube hits.
Near the start of the show, this charming trio thank us for attending and remind us they have been coming to Edinburgh for a least 10 years. Now they are big time and easily fill the McEwan Hall, a venue more suited to showcasing touring pop legends. As a subscriber to the YouTube sketches I did wonder how they would come across in such a big venue. Worry not! The show commences with cheerful audience participation, everything is done with a happy and carefree touch. A variety of topical sketches are performed, some are classics but most are new stuff. With a constant flow of one liners, and sporadic improvisation, we are kept in a joyful mood throughout the evening .
If you only go to one show, then this is it.
Check them out on YouTube then grab a ticket if you can.
