Comedy of the week: Return of the Lumberjacks, various venues


Fifteen years ago, this lovely bunch of Canadian fellers (snigger) arrived at the Edinburgh Fringe as fresh-faced newbies on the UK comedy scene; now ensconced over here, they're among the most enjoyable acts doing the rounds.

Rejoice, then, as they join forces for a gadabout – Glenn Wool and Craig Campbell wielding silly, shouty but wonderfully crafted tales of outsider adventure; and Stewart Francis dropping the kind of deliciously deadpan one-liners that take a beat to settle before hitting the mark.
