Comedy
Stewart Francis: Into the Punset
The star of ‘Mock the Week’ embarks on a brand-new show, in this, his last tour EVER!!!

Stewart Francis, the Canadian one-liner king, has announced his farewell comedy tour, aptly named ‘Into The Punset’, and will be coming to Preston Guild Hall in May 2019.

Francis has made waves in the comedy industry, making multiple appearances on ‘Mock the Week’, ‘Live at the Apollo’, ‘Crackerjack’, and ‘Qi’. He also won Dave’s Funniest Joke Of The Fringe in 2012, with the rib-cracking ‘You know who really gives kids a bad name? Posh and Becks’, also coming in with the eighth funniest; ‘I saw a documentary on how ships are kept together. Riveting!’

Since 2013 Francis has been speaking about quitting comedy, in order to pursue a career as being a cartoonist.‘Stand-up – I’ve been there and done it now. I’m grateful for everything it’s given me, including the chance to be what I always wanted to be – a cartoonist. It’ll be a step back financially but personality-wise and creatively, a step forward
