Into The Punset

Canadian one-line merchant Stewart Francis has announced his farewell comedy tour.

The comic, who won Dave’s Funniest Joke Of The Fringe in 2012 and has made a dozen appearances on Mock The Week, will go on the road with Into The Punset this autumn.

Francis has been speaking about quitting comedy since 2013, saying he wanted to pursue his first love of being a cartoonist.

In an interview with Chortle he said: ‘Plan A was always to be a syndicated cartoonist but after getting rejection letters I shifted to Plan B

‘But 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 as far as I'm concerned.’

He released his first book of illustrations, Pun Direction, in 2013 It was billed as a collection of '500 jokes, 30 cartoons and one recipe’.

'With Francis it's all about puns... He'll fill every minute with comedy bargains in the form of non-stop quick-fire gags, rarely giving you time to cease giggling until the next one starts... Quite simply, the service Francis provides is good old-fashioned joke telling with a hook, punch-line and a dose of panache thrown in for good measure' (Warwick Arts Centre) 'A brilliant comic brain... this stand-up cracks some of the best one liners I've ever heard' (The Guardian). 'Perfectly crafted gags' (The Sunday Times). Stewart Francis was named in Ents24's top 5 hardest-working comedians of 2015.
