GLENN WOOL Glenn began his comedy career in his hometown of Vancouver in 1995. He moved to London in 1998 and quickly became an established star of the London comedy circuit and now he is a star of the world comedy circuit. Having performed nearly everywhere, Glenn is truly one of the funniest comedians all over the planet right now. He is the perfect depiction of the rock'n'roll comic, favouring a wardrobe that wouldn't look out of place on the set of 'Almost Famous', whilst having the shaggy dog stories and tall tale to match. Glenn is much more than a simple yarn-spinner: he's as comfortable spouting delightfully offbeat whimsy as he is mining his own life for laughs, as well as throwing in undeniably sage and funny social commentary. Mix that with spell-binding charisma and a near-operatic delivery and you have the recipe for one of the finest comics walking the earth today! Most recently Glenn has conquered most of the States with performances on John Oliver's 'New York Stand-Up Show' and Jim Nortons 'Down and Dirty'. As well as appearances on '8 Out Of 10 Cats', 'Never Mind The Buzzcocks', 'Russell Howard's Good News' and numerous other UK stand-up shows. In recent years Glenn has hit the International circuit in a big way, performing to huge crowds in Singapore, Cape Town, Melbourne, Montreal, LA, New York, Holland, Dubai, Auckland and Sydney. "Effortlessly funny with an affability that other comics can only dream of - You have to go and see Glenn Wool. " The Guardian "If Like me, you believe that nobody could be much funnier than a cross between Jack Black and Meat Loaf, then you'll be pleased to learn that such a man exists" The Independent on Sunday "Seeing Glenn Wool perform should be made compulsory for the melancholy. There's no way you won't feel a bit better about the world afterwards. Lethally funny" ****Metro Plus support from: JULIET MEYERS "Devilish coy look, excellent material with some on the edge gags." The Scotsman JOE WELLS A battery of good jokes about our bad government." The Guardian EDY HURST "A manic ball of comedy energy." Gigglebeats YURIKO KOTANI "Leftfield rising star." Time Out AND YOUR RESIDENT HOST: BEN VAN DER VELDE "The perfect comedy club host - he is a master of audience interaction. The audience weren't just warmed up, but pretty hysterical even before the first act of the night hit the stage." Huffington Post
