How to cut S clay tile?

I need to cut a piece off an S clay tile. Can it be done with a hummer and a chisel? Or what other household tools would you recommend for it?

No. You need an angle grinder and a diamond blade.

So is this not going to work for a clay tile?

Go ahead and try and let us know how it works out for you. I assumed it was already installed on the roof. I also assumed you have thick terracota tile since you said it was an s tile.

No, it is not installed yet. Any idea what kind of chisel the guy is using in that video?

Looks like a standard cold chisel.

And I have to wonder how many hundreds, thousands of tiles that guy has practiced on for that little demo?

Id be using the grinder and diamond wheel myself!
