‘That Canadian Guy’
Glen recently starred in his own Comedy Network Special, “That Canadian Guy”, and has appeared on numerous other television shows including CBC’s “Comics”, “Just for Laughs”, “Open Mike” and “Comedy at Club 54″. He has also written for a number of television shows, and has even provided humourous political commentary for CTV’s “W-Five”.
Glen has made four appearances at “Just For Laughs”, the renowned Montreal International Comedy Festival. He has also been invited to other comedy festivals around the world, including The Chicago Comedy Festival and “The Mayfest” in Glasgow, Scotland. Glen has been the “on board” entertainment on a number of cruises as well, and has made two trans-Atlantic crossings.
A former advertising “creative guy”, Glen typifies the middle-aged, middle-class, middle-management guy who’s struggling desperately to keep pace with an ever changing world. Beneath his quiet, reserved exterior, there is frustration, confusion and even anger. Fortunately in Glen’s case, his angst doesn’t manifest itself in a shooting spree, but in some of the most clever, imaginative comedy anywhere. Glen’s act is not just a string of one-liners, but an intricate, interwoven pattern of humorous and often thought-provoking ideas and observations. His delivery alternates between laid back, low key musing and sudden explosive ranting. He’s topical, political, and occasionally even “politically incorrect”. Most of all though, he’s just very very funny.
Looking for a way to liven up your next sales convention or training session? Instead of another riveting slide show, why not bring in Glen Foster? As a comedian and an advertising/ marketing professional, Glen can custom tailor a routine to include specific information, and jokes that are relevant to your organization. Studies show that information presented in a humourous format is more easily recalled. Besides, do YOU really want to sit through another slide show?
Of course, if you’re simply looking for entertainment, Glen can handle that as well. He has performed at numerous company parties, conventions and golf tournaments, and received terrific response. There is a growing trend towards “employee only/ no spouse ” parties these days, and a comedy show can be a great alternative to the traditional after dinner dance.
