It was 15 years ago three fresh faced young Canadian comics, Stewart Francis, Craig Campbell and Glenn Wool 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. Each of them could and have filled theatres up and down the land. But this year they're back together in a feature length show that's just simply got to be the best value for money on the Fringe ever.

Fifteen years ago three fresh-faced Canadian comics - Stewart Francis, Craig Campbell and Glenn Wool - 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 tours under their belts.
Craig Campbell, who proudly calls himself 'The Moosefucker', has been compared to a young Billy Connolly (maybe it's the beard?); Glenn Wool has continued on his road to world domination with his extensive touring and Stewart Francis has a reputation for killer one-liners. In this primetime extravaganza Craig, Glenn and Stewart will do new material, as well as classic routines. Independently, each of these Canucks fill theatres up and down the land but this year they're joining forces in a feature-length, recession-busting show, that's just simply got to be the best value for laughs on the Fringe ever.
Stewart Francis: Outstanding in his field of killer one-liners, Stewart Francis moved to the UK three years ago and rapidly established himself as one of the best comics working here right now. He soon become a star of BBC's Mock The Week, Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow and Live At The Apollo. Stewart is currently touring the UK with his brand new show: Outstanding In His Field.
Craig Campbell is a formidable stand-up, one of the most charismatic and inventive performers around. He has made appearances on Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow, Russell Howard's Good News and Dave's One Night Stand. In Spring 2011 Craig toured nationally with his show Craig Campbell Live, extended twice due to popular demand. This Autumn he will re-join Frankie Boyle on tour.
Glenn Wool is a comic truly at the top of his game right now. As well as his global live work Glenn's burgeoning list of television credits includes: The Green Room With Paul Provenza (Showtime), Jon Oliver's New York Stand-up Show (Comedy Central) and Funny As Hell (HBO).
