What happens when you're branded 'abnormal' in a world obsessed with normality?

This show is Francesca's hilarious, insightful and fascinating answer...

Francesca is an award-winning comedian who has toured internationally with sell-out runs around the world including The Melbourne Comedy Festival, The Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. She has also performed in Ireland, South Africa, Canada, America (in Hollywood and on Broadway) and at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland where she performed alongside actress Emma Thompson.

A regular face on TV, Francesca is well-known for starring in five series of Grange Hill and a much-loved appearance on The Frank Skinner Show. Ricky Gervais is a big supporter of her work and wrote a starring role especially for her in Extras where she starred opposite actress Kate Winslet. 

She is currently working on a TV comedy series with Australian Comedian Adam Hills, is a regular newspaper reviewer on BBC News 24 TV, BBC Radio 4 and 5Live, delivers motivational speeches across the globe and runs comedy workshops for mixed ability performers and writers in the UK and overseas.

Not one to shy away from the important issues, in 2008 Francesca made global headlines when she became the first Olympic Torch-Bearer to pull out of the London relay in protest against China's treatment of Tibet. This year, she took on Michael Portillo over the government's welfare reforms live on BBC1's This Week. Her appearance sparked huge public interest and the programme's producers were bowled over by the amount of positive feedback - far more than any of their previous shows had ever received.

"You leave the show feeling like you've injected endorphins into your veins as well as having a greater appreciation for your life and the body that gives it to you. A must see."
