Star of 'Mock the Week', 'Live at the Apollo' and 'Crackerjack', Stewart Francis embarks on a brand-new show, in this, his last tour ever! See him before he heads off... 'Into The Punset'.

When the pun stops…. stop!

With even more dates added for this year, this is turning into a beast of a goodbye tour – culminating at the Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith, in December. This will be Stewart’s last and final stand-up gig – ever - but before that catch him at The Hafren, in Newtown, on Thursday, November 28.

Winner of Dave’s Funniest Joke Of The Fringe, this hugely successful one-liner wizard has become a household name in the UK and Ireland over the last decade, thanks to his ‘perfectly crafted gags’ and expert timing, which he has brought to sell-out audiences across the world.

Now it’s time to sit back and enjoy his excellent jokes for the last time, on the last leg of his farewell tour.

Stewart has received international acclaim in the US and his native Canada, as well as here in the UK and Ireland. Amongst other shows he has appeared on are BBC’s 'Mock The week', 'Live At The Apollo', 'Celebrity Mastermind', 'Not Going Out', Dave’s 'One Night Stand' and C4’s '8 Out Of 10 Cats'.

Stewart admits to feeling no extra pressure to make 'Into The Punset' an extra-special one, and his joke-writing process for this show hasn’t changed. He said: “I just come up with the gags as and when. I’ve got the template for the show down, so as I come up with a new gag I try to work out how I can put it in there. But for me, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, and that’s how I can carry on with my day without being obsessed with writing jokes. I just feel the sunshine on my cheeks and if I come up with a gag, all the better.”

The big question, then, is what comes next for Stewart Francis? “I’m going to step away from comedy and focus on acting which is another passion," he said. "When you’re a comedian, casting directors can be a bit lazy and think, ‘well he’s just a comedian’ but I’m not. I think I have some significant acting chops and I want to prove that to myself and to the world. But when you’re wearing both hats as a comedian and an actor, you can be taken less seriously; so I want there to be a real separation.”
