Hunt the Vigan is made up of  London-based comic James Gavigan and Erin Hunter, both in their 30s.

Gavigan told The Irish Post: “Living in London and coming from a small town in Donegal I never expected that our little parody video would ignite such a big global debate, but that’s the power of comedy and the accessibility of the internet…next we’re gonna tackle world peace!”

Erin Hunter, who stars in the short video, is a London-based actor-writer from Los Angeles who trained at UCLA’s School of Theatre Film & TV and LAMDA. Hunter is of Irish extraction (via California) and studied at Trinity College Dublin.
