Never miss another 'Will Franken' show
Things We Did Before Reality: Will Franken
Armed with a ‘highly developed sense of the absurd’ (New York Times), comedy virtuoso Will Franken deluges his audiences with a kaleidoscopic tsunami of mind-blowing character comedy so funny that people stop laughing only long enough to drop their jaws.
His unique form of theatrical comedy is all contained in his one-man sketch roller coaster of mind-blowing and gut-busting hilarity. See Will’s never-ending quest to illustrate the comedic pitfalls of the perceived reality by utilizing his uncanny acting ability, razor-sharp wit, and general disdain for political correctness.
‘I cannot remember one moment of this show that wasn’t funny.’ **** Scotsman
‘An astounding character comedian.’ **** Chortle
American Will Franken is a critically acclaimed satirist and high-speed, quick-change character comedian. Franken’s humour is rooted in the British sketch comedy tradition, notably Monty Python. Onstage, he portrays an eclectic mix of characters through a series of interconnected vignettes. His skits are often satirical, skewering a range of subcultures and political views, often absurdist.
'Strange, sometimes awkward, often funny and always interesting, Franken’s act is
like Marmite – ****ing awesome – and deserves an audience as big as his character roster' (Three Weeks)
'Amidst the anodyne wannabe TV comics who are 40% hair product, 40% ego and 20% talent there is still plenty of the real thing to be found, comedically. Will Franken... is absolutely brilliant. Iron satire in a velvet glove. Clever, creative comedy' (The Scotsman)
'The sharp-clawed satire on US culture and liberal piety, and the constant upending of what it is we think we're watching, make for a unique and compelling hour... You can't take your eyes off these inspired outpourings' (The Guardian)
'Will Franken is an astounding character comedian who makes almost everyone else in his field look like lazy chancers' (Chortle).
