Birmingham Comedy Festival - What The **** Is Normal?: Francesca Martinez
Birmingham Comedy Festival is an annual city?wide event. Volunteer led, the festival made its debut in 2001, and quickly established itself as one of the city’s most popular events. In 2011, 50,000 people attended the festival.
A list of those who’ve appeared at previous festivals reads like a who’s?who of contemporary comedy, and includes Michael McIntyre, Lee Evans, Peter Kaye, Lenny Henry, Jimmy Carr, Alan Carr, Tim Minchin, The Fast Show, Stephen Merchant and Frankie Boyle. Alongside the TV names are an equally long list of local names, including Ted Chippington, Mrs Barbara Nice, Jo Enright, James Cook, Karen Bayley and others.
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’.
