Francesca is an award-winning comedian who has toured internationally including sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival, the Melbourne Comedy Festival and the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. She has recently completed a 33-date UK tour and two Off-West-End London runs at the famous Tricycle Theatre and the legendary Hackney Empire.
She’s a regular face on TV and is most known for her starring role in Ricky Gervais’ EXTRAS.
Francesca has also guested on many prime-time chat-shows including THE FRANK SKINNER SHOW. She made global headlines when she became the first Olympic Torch Bearer to pull out of the London relay in protest over China’s treatment of Tibet.
Francesca has performed all over the world including Ireland, South Africa, Canada, America – on Broadway – and at last year’s World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, where she performed alongside actress, Emma Thompson.
Oh yeah, and she has mild cerebal palsy but she much prefers the word ‘wobbly’.
Francesca became a patron of Pegasus Theatre because she’s a real fan admiring the fact that as an organisation we think outside the box and present different voices that people otherwise wouldn’t hear.
