    I think you’re thinking of the Foil, Arms and Hogg sketch:

    Nothing remotely funny about them. Or ever was since they stole a rubber bandits song to turn it into a Tipp hurling song in 2009.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,494 ✭✭✭✭ ted1


    Turned off, load of rubbish. Disappointed as I enjoyed their American series


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,331 ✭✭✭ kevthegaff


    2nd parties funny enough


  • Registered Users Posts: 458 ✭✭ P.lane78


    It's like watching a really cringe country stag .....


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 478 ✭✭ Roots 2020


    It's like watching a Tipperary version of Love Actually. Jaysus.

    Ant and dec are quakin in their boots!


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,696 ✭✭✭✭ siblers


    Their podcast is generally very good but got a bit boring in recent weeks, their TV work is dreadful though. I'm a bit surprised just how bad it is


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,399 ✭✭✭ castletownman


    Dreadful, aside for the Conor Sketches bit, which wasn't as good as usual. Stuff with Marty Morrissey and Des Cahill was tripe. Oh how clever they were calling the band Eastlife.

    The scary thing is, RTE probably think they are on to something here and will consider it a raging success.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,145 ✭✭✭ Samsgirl


    Had it recorded to watch later. Absolutely dire. Was awful viewing.
    Got to the 2nd part then just deleted it off the sky box.
    Poor man's Ant n Dec wanna be's


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,528 ✭✭✭ PieOhMy


    A less funny version of the Hardy Bucks 'lads from the country' premise. And as a lad from the wesht I really like the hardy bucks, like Martin Breannan on Alan Partirdge the subtle and ridiculously accurate mannerisms were spot on and I found them really funny.
    I find the 2 jonnys approach to be more blunt force humour of watching some bogger carachters clichè in various fish out of water situations. Not that martin brennan wasnt just that either but he was much much funnier.

    I think they're gone too old now to be pulling off their 'young fella' skits.
    They need to rebrand and become the new D'Unbelievables.

  • Registered Users Posts: 75,026 ✭✭✭✭ JP Liz V1


    They are back on Monday night with a new series on RTE 2



  • Registered Users Posts: 11,489 ✭✭✭✭ Purple Mountain


    Definitely well past their sell by date. It's like looking at an uncle at a wedding trying to chat up the bride's friends.

    Rubbish for the brain-the lower one

    Looking forward to it.

    The D,unbelieveables were very funny, at least early on before they started becoming a parody of themselves with the Lotto ads. They wernt everyone's cup of tea but you could tell they'd honed their act and worked on their material. The 2 Johnny's are a one trick pony who were never funny to begin with.



  • Registered Users Posts: 15,620 ✭✭✭✭ Mantis Toboggan


    Well they're regularly at the top of the podcast charts so they must be doing something right. I'll watch this, better than ear to the ground or any of that shite.

    They aren't great.

    Time has moved on.

    Ant and Dec need not worry



  • Registered Users Posts: 11,696 ✭✭✭✭ siblers


    They're shite (podcast is OK at times) but they're massively popular.
