plus compere MARK PALMER

"Edgy, imaginative, funny and original, Canadian born Wool sets the standards at the Fringe” Daily Telegraph

Canadian Glenn Wool is a cleverly subversive comedian. 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.

Glenn Wool began his comedy career in his hometown of Vancouver in 1995. He moved to London in 1998 and quickly became one of the rising stars of the London and international comedy circuit having performed in Australia, New Zealand, The USA, South Africa, Switzerland, France, Croatia and others. Glenn has been nominated for Best International Stand Up at The New Zealand Comedy Awards and Best Headliner at the Chortle Awards

In recent years Glenn has hit the International circuit in a big way, performing to huge crowds in Singapore, Holland, Dubai, New York and Los Angeles. He's also a popular addition to many of the great Summer music Festivals in the UK, including Reading & Leeds, Latitude, Bestival, Download and of course, Glastonbury.

“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

“The funniest and most sharply observed comedy at this years festival” Skinny Fest 

“Why aren't you in a queue somewhere buying a ticket?" The Scotsman

“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

“Absolutely hilarious”  Independent

Guardian Recommended Show 2017

Darren Harriott is one of the most exciting up-and-coming comedians on the circuit. Over the last year, he has appeared on Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, BBC Radio 4’s Best of the Fest, BBC 4 Extra Stands Up, and he also features in a new series for Comedy Central Online.

2017 saw Darren head to the Edinburgh Festival with his debut hour Defiant at the Pleasance Courtyard, which was a big hit with audiences and critics alike.

A confident performer with a captivating charm, Darren’s comedy deals with everything from subverting stereotypes, to everyday observations, to that juiciest of topics, religion – all with a cutting edge.

“This sharp debut explores his many contradictions with primetime warmth. Watch him.” The Sunday Times
