VIDEO: Irish sketch group back again with hilarious short 'mobile hospital'

Claire Roney

Comedy group Foil Arms and Hog release another hilarious video ahead of their upcoming performance at the Vodafone Comedy Festival.

A doctor and nurse respond to mobile phone patients in critical care from incidents like toilet drops to cracked screens:

"What's the status on the patient in ward three,"  demands the doctor.

The nurse responds with a hilariously grave face: "Battery non-responsive, GPS signal weak, the home button's sticky and when you open messages nothing happens."

The solution? "Induce airplane mode."

Drama abounds when a new phone-patient is brought to the doctor in critical care, but the phone does not make it. The owner's grief is palpable, but so is thankfully so is the humor.

The trio are set to perform at the Vodafone Centre Stage in Dublin July 23rd - 26th.
