Fresh from a sold-out, critically acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe, Glenn Wool (Freestyle with Frankie Boyle, The Comedians’ Comedian’s Comedians with Doug Stanhope) hits the road with a hysterical new show chronicling his past two years, VIVA FOREVER, which is interesting because… well, just come to the show. He’ll tell you then. I mean, if you’ve read this far, just Google him and see if it’s your kind of thing. (I can’t believe we still have to tell people about Google in this day and age, but there you go. I blame Trump.)
