About this product
- DescriptionIf you grow up in a world where wrinkles are practically illegal, going bald is cause for a mental breakdown, and women over size zero are encouraged to shoot themselves (immediately), what the hell do you do if you're, gasp...Disabled? Whatever body you're born into, the pressure to be rmal is everywhere. But have you ever met a rmal person? What do they look like? Where do they live? What do they eat for breakfast? And what the **** does rmal mean anyway? This is the award-winning wobbly comedian Francesca Martinez's funny, personal, and universal story of how she learned to stick two shaky fingers up to the crazy expectations of a world obsessed with being 'rmal'.
- Author BiographyMulti-award-winning Francesca Martinez is the first and only woman to win the Open Mic Award at the Edinburgh Festival, and has since become one of the top comedians of her generation. As well as touring internationally with sell-out runs around the world, Francesca is a TV and radio regular, making popular appearances on such varied programmes as The News Quiz, Russell Howard's Good News, The Jonathan Ross Show, The Frank Skinner Show, Ricky Gervais's Extras (in a role written specially for her), Newsnight, This Week, Free Speech (where she was voted most popular guest) and Channel 4 News. Currently, Francesca is in the middle of a 55-date UK/Ireland tour of her award-winning show, also called 'WHAT THE **** IS NORMAL?!', which has just been nominated for Best Show at Dave's Leicester Comedy Festival 2013 - the UK's largest comedy festival.
