This month, on Monday, June 10, will see Glenn Wool from Canada, Aidan Jones from Australia and Kyle Legacy from the UK take to the stage for a side-splitting evening of original comedy. Here’s what to expect.
“Effortlessly funny with an affability that other comics can only dream of.” – The Guardian
Glenn Wool began his comedy career in 1995 in his hometown of Vancouver. Three years later, Wool moved to London and quickly became an established star on the London circuit before becoming a globally recognised name and dominating the international circuit, performing to huge crowds in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, USA, South Africa, and across Europe.
Wool’s credits include John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show, The Green Room with Paul Provenza, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Russell Howard’s Good News and numerous others. In 2016, Wool was featured on The John Bishop Show (BBC One) and hosted a new NBC series Before the Morning After.
In 2017 and 2018, you would have caught Wool touring with Reginald D Hunter, heard him on the Freestyle podcast with Frankie Boyle and seen him on Doug Stanhope’s The Comedians’ Comedian’s Comedian at Austin, TX’s South by Southwest.
Wool has been nominated for Best International Stand Up at the New Zealand Comedy Awards and twice Best Headliner at the Chortle Awards.
Described by The Scotsman as a “masterpiece of comedy”, Wool is bound to entertain with his brand of cleverly subversive comedy.
“An effortless and vulnerable charm seldom seen on the stand-up stage, even from the most famous comic minds.” – The Music
Aidan Jones is known to his friends as Taco because the first girl he ever kissed thought he looked Mexican. Jones is actually half Australian and half Colombian as his Mum got pregnant when she backpacked around South American in her 20s – not a joke.
Jones began his comedy career in 2012. Five years later, he performed his first full run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe with his solo show The Abersham Flat before touring the show in Dublin, Barcelona, Paris and Berlin.
In 2018, Jones returned to Australia, performing sold-out runs at the Adelaide Fringe and Melbourne Comedy Festival. Jones has now brought his new special 52 Days to Australia after another sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018.
The hilariously honest stand-up and storytelling of Jones is unlike anything you will see.
“The LeBron James of Comedy.” – The Australian Times
Kyle Legacy made his TV debut on Russell Brand’s hit show Brand X in 2012, and he has been on stage ever since. Born and raised in Liverpool, Legacy now tours the globe with the popular comedy collective Laugh Mob.
Using his gift for crowd work, Legacy has been dominating the Australian comedy circuit and making appearances at every major festival around the world. His credits include opening for Erik Griffin, performing at the Comedy Store in Sydney, London and Los Angeles and having a sold-out show at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2017.
Legacy is moving up the comedy ladder and becoming one of Sydney’s favourite MCs. He operates in what seems to be an eccentric haze, lifting the audience to the same high spirits as himself. Once there, he reveals a skill for surreal interludes in the absurd, showing his genuine childlike sense of wonder at the world around him.
