Never miss another 'Francesca Martinez' show
What The **** Is Normal?!: Francesca Martinez, Jen Brister
What happens when you're branded ‘abnormal', in a world obsessed with normality? This award-winning show is Francesca's defiant, insightful and fascinating answer...
Intrigued by the power that a six-letter word has over so many people, Francesca shares her own life-changing journey of growing up as ‘abnormal’, being rescued from High-School-Hell by ‘Grange Hill’, letting Ricky Gervais making fun of her walk in 'Extras' and working out what to say to the BBC after being offered the role of a, ahem, vegetable.
Whatever body you’re born into, it seems that most people share the universal desire to be ‘normal’. This show is for anyone who’s ever struggled to fit in, felt ‘different’ or wondered what normal really means. Apart from a cycle on a washing machine, of course.
Rising comedy star and ex-Grange Hill actress (playing Rachel Burns) whose shows are a mix of stand-up and flashback sketches. 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. She has mild cerebral palsy but she much prefers the word ‘wobbly’.
