News: Stewart Francis Announces Major 2015 Tour

Stewart Francis

Stand-up star Stewart Francis has announced his biggest UK tour to date. The UK-based Canadian’s Pun Gent tour will start on April 16, 2015 at the Epsom Playhouse and finish with three nights at the Bloomsbury Theatre from June 11.

Francis is the master of quickfire wordplay, piling on pun after pun after pun. In 2012 he won Dave’s Funniest Joke Of The Fringe Award with "You know who really gives kids a bad name? Posh and Becks".

Having received acclaim Stewart moved to the UK in 2010 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 (Mock The Week, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Live At The Apollo, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Dave’s One Night Stand and even Celebrity Mastermind) and supported Ricky Gervais on tour.

Francis 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. Stewart has written a sitcom that he's currently shopping around. It will star himself and chronicles observations he's made about living in the UK. The working title is The Olivia Colman Show.

This September Stewart will be climbing Everest along with five other comedians and fifty comedy fans. He’ll be part of the Stand Up On Everest trek, which will raise money for Save the Children and aim to set a new record by performing the world’s highest stand-up gig.

Tickets for his tour are now on sale. Details here.
