Tickets £8 in advance, £10 on the door.
"Comedy Brilliance!" - Jasper Carrot
2005 Edinburgh Fringe debut with his one man show "As seen on TV"
After a harebrained idea that went just a bit too far Chris first gave stand-up a go in the summer of 2003. In the 12 months that followed he was not only voted Jongleurs best newcomer but also achieved a top three placing in another three premier national competitions including Channel Four's "So You Think You're Funny?". He's now playing some of the top clubs in London and around the country including Jongleurs and The Comedy Store, and with his services continuing to increase in demand.
Although registered blind, Chris chooses to talk only occasionally about his disability as he believes that the audience should be able to relate to as much of his material as possible. Instead his material spans from the real to the ridiculous - whether it be about university shenanigans or the all too depressing world of the giraffe… and with the odd tale of embarrassment thrown in for good measure!
"An absolute natural!" - Dave Spikey (Phoenix Nights)
The modern day Tommy Cooper has arrived. With relentless gags and a questionable magic performance, Cannelloni's zippy, absurd humour is an unadulterated riot of fun. This hugely likeable comedian and enjoyable performance is so refreshing, allowing for banter and a connection with the crowd which never fails to impress. Cannelloni's brand of humour is inoffensive and brings a real freshness and fun-loving nature to the scene; he is the master of mirth.
Glenn is also one half of the critically-acclaimed sketch comedy duo Thunderbards, who had a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2014, as well as a show at the Fringe the previous year voted one of GQ’s ‘Top Ten Funniest Shows at the Fringe’. In 2014, they were finalists in the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year competition, performed on McAuley And Co on BBC Scotland, and had two jokes from their show Seconds included in the Daily Mirror’s and the Edinburgh Evening News’ top ten funniest jokes of the Edinburgh Fringe. In 2013, they were runners-up in the inaugural London Sketchfest, which saw their inclusion in the Independent’s ‘Best Comedy of the Year’ alongside Louis CK and Bo Burnham.
As a writer, Glenn is known for his silly one-liners on Twitter, and has also written for BBC Radio shows including The Now Show and News Jack. He is currently writing for CITV’s Scrambled.
Outside of comedy, Glenn is a newsreader for radio stations across the country, including Capital FM, Classic FM, XFM, Heart, Smooth, Sky News Radio and LBC. He also regularly appears on London Live’s Evening News, and the Evening Show.
“Glenn Moore is tipped for great things”
“Great one-liners, with silly turns of phrase that really shine”
