Glen Foster has been one of the top comedians in Canada for nearly thirty years.   He didn’t just work the road; he’s one of the guys who helped to build it.  Glen appeared in his first one-hour comedy special, “That Canadian Guy” in 2000 and, since then, the moniker has stuck.  Many of his fans don’t even know his actual name, but they do know one thing: “That Canadian Guy” is one of the funniest comedians anywhere.

Glen’s comedy appeals to those people who appreciate a more intelligent, but slightly “edgy” brand of humour.   His material is mostly clean and always clever, topical and timely, reflecting his own experiences, current events and popular culture.  He’s also not afraid to inject his own political and sometimes “politically incorrect” social commentary from time to time.

Glen recently appeared in his second one hour Comedy Network special and has also performed on numerous other television shows including seven appearances with CBC’s, “Just for Laughs”, as well as “The Winnipeg Comedy Festival", “Halifax Comedy Festival”, and “The Mike Bullard Show”.   He is a weekly guest contributor on the Sun News Network and he can also be heard frequently on CBC Radio’s “The Debaters”.

Glen has recently released his third concert CD, “Prickly:  Live at The Rose” and check out some of his video clips here: 1 and 2.

 

 

 

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
