IS GLENN ALONE IN HIS ESCAPADES AROUND THE WORLD OR IS THERE AN UNSEEN COMPANION TRAVELLING WITH HIM DURING THESE ADVENTURES? IS IT AN INNER MONOLOGUE OR A HECKLING DEMIGOD? 'WOOL’S NEW SHOW IS A MASTERPIECE OF COMEDY, WHICH HAS THE AUDIENCE HELPLESS WITH LAUGHTER. I GENUINELY THINK THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST HOURS OF COMEDY I HAVE EVER SEEN' ***** (KATE COPSTICK, SCOTSMAN)

a cleverly subversive comedian, because behind his shaggy hangdog looks and his apparently homespun humour lies a sharp intelligence which is slowly and quietly hitting the mark on several of the important issues of the day.

Wool 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.

Not hardcore political comedy, but maybe all the more effective for being presented in a language the average layman can understand.

Glenn is a regular TV face having made appearances on John Olivers New York COmedy Show (USA), 7DAYS (NZ), Melbourne Comedy Gala (AUS), Funny as Hell (HBO/CAN) Russell Howards Good News (UK), Never Mind The Buzzcocks, The BBC Stand Up Show, The Live Floor Show, 28 Acts in 28 Minutes and The Comic side of Seven Days for the BBC. The World Stands Up, Comedy Blue and Edinburgh and Beyond for Comedy Central, He continues to be a regular in Comedy Cuts, the comedy show from ITV2. Glenn also wrote and starred in What's The Story?' broadcast on Channel 4 as part of the Comedy Lab season.

Podcasts are familiar to Glenn too having recently been on Marc Marons WTF?, Richard Herrings As It Occurs To Me, Graham Clark & Dave Chumka's STOP PODCASTING YOURSELF and for Radio Political Animal and 28 Acts in 28 Minutesfor BBC Radio 4 as well as headlining 4 at the Store (R4) and The Late Night Comedy Show for Radio 1.
