Stewart Francis - Pun Gent

Stewart Francis - Pun Gent

Following a sell-out tour that was extended due to phenomenal demand, Stewart Francis's show PUN GENT is released on DVD, filmed at the beautiful Lowry Theatre in Salford, England.

Stewart Francis is loved for his appearances on Mock The Week, Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow and Live At The Apollo. A previous winner of Dave's Funniest Joke Of The Fringe Award 2012, he has earned a reputation as one of the finest comics around. 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. So where's the catch? Well there probably is a pun-related answer, but only word wizards such as Stewart Francis could find one.

First released: Monday 28th November 2016

Stewart Francis - Pun Direction

Stewart Francis - Pun Direction

"I was standing in the park today wondering, why does a Frisbee appear larger the closer it gets? And then it hit me."

Stewart Francis is the king of the smart one-liner, the brilliantly crafted, often punning gag delivered in his trademark deadpan style. In this, his first book, he presents 500 of his funniest, most perfectly formed gags plus cartoons and more.
