Featuring

Glenn Wool

Glenn Wool appearing at this event

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).
