The Lumberjacks: Stewart Francis, Craig Campbell, Glenn Wool
"Canadian stand up comedians Craig Campbell, Stewart Francis and Glenn Wool are touring the UK with their hilarious Edinburgh Festival 2012 show.
Fifteen years ago, the three fresh faced young Canadian comics made their Edinburgh debut at the fledgling Stand Comedy Club. A decade and a half later and they've grown into formidable performers with an enviable string of broadcast credits and live touring under their belts.
Between them, they have appeared on: Mock The Week, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow, Live At The Apollo, Russell Howard's Good News and Dave's One Night Stand. They have also toured solo across the UK, US, Scandinavia, Canada and Australia.
Each of them could and have filled theatres up and down the land. But this year they're back together in a feature length. All three will perform new material as well as classic routines.
The Lumberjacks return!
Please note, over 16's only."

'With Francis it's all about puns... He'll fill every minute with comedy bargains in the form of non-stop quick-fire gags, rarely giving you time to cease giggling until the next one starts... Quite simply, the service Francis provides is good old-fashioned joke telling with a hook, punch-line and a dose of panache thrown in for good measure' (Warwick Arts Centre)
'A brilliant comic brain... this stand-up cracks some of the best one liners I've ever heard' (The Guardian).
'Perfectly crafted gags' (The Sunday Times).
Stewart Francis was named in Ents24's top 5 hardest-working comedians of 2015.
Stewart Francis tour dates
Described by some as the Canadian Billy Connolly, Craig never fails to entertain. The wild man of Canadian comedy delivering in style and occasionally making up one third of The Dinks. His unique humour fuses together whimsical anecdotes with salty stories of sex, drugs and circumcision.
However, be warned, his laid-back manner and genuine warmth belie the true outrageous nature of his material. Still, his stoner philosophy and risque subjects have won him devoted fans worldwide.
He has supported Frankie Boyle and performed on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy
Roadshow (BBC One), Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Three), and was responsible for
easing the contractions of an expectant mother who laughed so hard at his performance on
Dave’s One Night Stand (Dave) - which detailed an encounter with a badger...her waters broke.
'Bringing a tale to life like a young Billy Connolly' (Edinburgh Evening News)
'One of the most skilled storytellers and jokesmiths on the circuit... Craig is simply a very, very funny man' (Chortle).

Inventive Canadian stand-up Wool certainly cuts a dash on stage with his heavy black eyeliner, long leather coat and distinctive cowboy hat. Already an established comic in the USA with his laid back, confident and edgy style and stunning improvisation. No subject too sensitive, no issue too extreme. He tackles a wide range of subjects from religious fundamentalism to current world politics and does it in such a way that you hardly notice that that is what you are listening to.
'Wincingly funny, it's enough to buckle a bull moose' (Melbourne Age)
'Effortlessly funny wit an affability that other comics can only dream of. You have to go see Glenn Wool' (The Guardian)
'Edgy, imaginative, funny and original... Tipped for greatness' (The Daily Telegraph).
