Foil Arms and Hog
This article is from 2009.
The sketch form is taken back to its pleasingly gimmick-free basics here by Irish trio Foil Arms and Hog. While some of their routines are based on familiar formats, their best work is deliriously funny and at times unexpectedly dark. If their future shows are as good as the sharpest sketches here, these charming and versatile performers could go far indeed.
