Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Irtish sketch comedy trio Foil Arms & Hog have confirmed that they’ll be taking their new show SWINES on tour early next year.
The tour kicks off in Liverpool on 20 February 2020, taking in a total of 15 dates and finishing with a show at Cliffs Pavillion, Southend-on-Sea on 26 April 2020.
Fans can get tickets for the new tour 24 hours early in our presale.

SWINES is the brand new show from Sean Finegan (Foil), Conor McKenna (Arms) and Sean Flanagan (Hog), collectively known as Foil Arms & Hog. The new tour follows their hugely successful OINK and CRAICLING runs.
The trio brought SWINES to the most recent Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where they received the accolade of being the British Comedy Guide’s best-reviewed show throughout the festival.
Since forming at university, Foil Arms & Hog have built a huge online following for their concise, silly and observational short-form sketches. They have amassed a staggering 62 million views and 340,000 subscribers on YouTube, as well as having 950,000 likes on Facebook.
Some of their most popular online sketches include An Englishman Plays Risk, When Irish People Speak Irish and WTF is Brexit?.
Live is where Foil Arms & Hog shine and the group have performed to sell out audiences in the UK, the US and Australia during their career so far.
Foil Arms & Hog will bring their new show SWINES to venues across the UK in 2020.
