390 – Foil Arms and Hog

Posted 3 years ago on November 25th, 2021.

With a dedicated crowd of 650K YouTube subscribers, Foil Arms & Hog are a live sketch act who also do internet videos, and not “YouTubers” like you thought...

We explore how these lovely men have spent a decade at the Edinburgh Fringe entirely on their own terms, and why they aspire to “Moneyball” but don’t know their arse from their SEO.

We uncover their creative, scripting and filming processes, examine their position as “permanent underdogs”, and as we dive further into how they pool their personal ambition, we happen upon one of the best thing’s Stu has ever heard…

40 mins of scorchingly good extra content available exclusively to the Insiders Club includes FA&H sharing their own homemade vocabulary of sketch-writing terms, including “The Matrix’, “The Swan-dive”, “Chris-Rocking” and more! We also cover how they embody the DIY aesthetic regarding management and pitching to people, and Stu forces them to describe each other’s strengths and weaknesses in detail…

Go to www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders for this and much more, including the exclusive Insiders Q&As with Nish Kumar, James Acaster and Fern Brady and the incredible “self-help for comedians” special with Amanda Donnet.

Everything Stu's up to: Stu offers remote talks to business on what the distilled wisdom of over 350 comics can teach you about resilience, especially in times of pandemic. “The most inspiring talk I’ve had in years!” (LEGO staff member) Find out more at www.stuartgoldsmith.com

Stu’s “Virtual Office Party” is now available as the perfect solution to remote-working office parties, sales conferences, motivational and wellbeing events. “It was an absolutely hysterical and wonderful evening, for both those partaking and everyone watching online!”
- Maria Kuzak, (Fundraising Manager at CALM)

"The games and interactive element were hilarious and extremely well executed! 10/10 from us, you created a real buzz in our business, thank you."
- Ben Gott, (SVP at Merkle)
