Foil, Arms and Hog are Ireland’s most exciting new act. Here they present, in association with Foil, Arms and Hog oven-handle specialists and the nation’s favourite Foil, Arms and Hog shoe-polish remover, a sketch show of ‘pure genii’ – A collection of fast-paced, surreal and ridiculous comedy sketches with a twist.

‘I love these guys, check them out’ – Des Bishop on twitter

‘The brightest new act out there’ – Ardal O’ Hanlon

‘I don’t know. Write whatever you want’ – Dave Mc Savage

Last March’s Whelan’s gig was undoubtedly our best gig of 2011, actually our best gig to date! Well we’re back. Once again we promise you a comedy show different to any other you’ve seen. Not just a collection of our material, but filled to the brim with surprises.

Will the Hog have another budget busting entrance, lavished in balloons, confetti and heralded with over ostentatious music?

Will we end the show playing a barrage of different vegetables as musical instruments?

No. We’ll do different shit. But it will be better.

Come and join the party.

And remember: Half price oven handles all week-end at the Ballymount industrial estate
