The hilarious stand-up comedian Stewart Francis is the star of Mock The Week, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and Live At The Apollo. As a winner of Dave’s Funniest Joke Of The Fringe Award 2012, he has earned a reputation as one of the finest comics around. Quite simply, the service Francis provides is good old-fashioned joke telling with a hook, punch-line and a dose of panache thrown in for good measure. So where’s the catch? Well there probably is a pun-related answer, but only word wizards such as Stewart Francis could find one.
Having received international acclaim, in the US, UK and his native Canada, Stewart moved to the UK on a Tuesday in August, 2007 following successful appearances at the Edinburgh Fringe, sell-out nationwide tours and numerous TV appearances. Since then he has continued to sell out venues, appear on TV (besides Mock The Week, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and Live At The Apollo he has been in 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Dave’s One Night Stand and even Celebrity Mastermind), and supported Ricky Gervais on tour. He is also an actor and writer, credits including Not Going Out and The Omid Djalili Show. Along with Craig Campbell and Glenn Wool he is also a member of comedy trio The Lumberjacks, who have performed at the Edinburgh Fringe and throughout the UK.
