London Sketchfest: Foil, Arms & Hog + BEASTS
May 2, 2014 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm$13
FOIL, ARMS & HOG – Ireland’s top sketch comedy group Foil, Arms and Hog are a rising star on the UK sketch comedy circuit. Lively, energetic and mischievous, Sean Finegan (Foil), Conor McKenna (Arms) and Sean Flanagan (Hog) know how to charm and entertain a crowd. The show is a fast paced mish-mash of sketch comedy performed with a stand-up flair, with music, improvisation and audience interaction. They arrive in London on the back of a World tour including Chicago, San Francisco, LA and Adelaide bringing their unique blend of sketch comedy to the SketchFest stage.
‘It’s original, well-written and really, really funny’ (Kevin Bridges)
‘Fantastic and increasingly bizarre’ (Scotsman)
‘A powerhouse of sketch comedy’ ★★★★ (Chortle)
BEASTS – Enticed down from the mountains with the promise of raw meat, these savage creatures were washed, shaved and taught to use cutlery. Now, dressed like gentlemen and schooled in the twin arts of humour and needlework, BEASTS conspire to craft slick, hilarious and sublimely surprising sketches. Critically acclaimed and impeccably dressed BEASTS are Owen Roberts, James McNicholas and Ciarán Dowd. After a sell-out second Edinburgh show last year, these monstrously funny sketchmen are all set for a storming 2014, proving that you can mix style and substance with skill but that still won’t kill the beast within.
‘Hilariously funny – brought to mind early Pythons. Could this entertaining trio go all the way? This critic thinks so.’ (The Sunday Times)
‘A magnetic dynamic’★★★★ (Scotsgay)
‘Some of the most finely crafted comedy I’ve seen’ ★★★★★ (Broadway Baby)
