Comedy and social media sensation Frenchy spent the first half of the year performing his new stand-up show Frenchy Unleashed to sold out crowds at Adelaide Fringe Festival, Brisbane Comedy Festival, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Sydney Comedy Festival and New Zealand Comedy Festival. Now it’s greater Australia’s turn to catch this comedy superstar live on stage!
Frenchy’s 17-date regional tour kicks off on Thursday 21 September at Geelong Performing Arts Centre, going on to Brisbane, Wollongong, Gosford, Newcastle, Hobart, Albury, Canberra, Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Bendigo, Coffs Harbour, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast before wrapping up at Darwin Entertainment Centre on Saturday 4 November.
After the huge success of his Adelaide Fringe run earlier this year, Frenchy will be returning to Adelaide for an encore performance at the Rhino Room on Saturday 7 October.

A prolific writer, Frenchy writes and creates original YouTube content to upload to his channel weekly. In 2015, Frenchy and his musical collaborator Zach Gervais released their debut single Friendzone – which hit the iTunes Top 50 within 48 hours of its release, peaking at #26 and overtaking artists such as Sia and Drake along the way.
Last year, Frenchy’s narrative comedy web-series The Australiana Hostel was one of five recipients of Google and Screen Australia’s ‘Skip Ahead’ initiative- a program which awards winners up to a quarter of a million dollars to help fund and produce original narrative-based content made specifically for global audiences. The darkly funny series has been described as “If the chaos of Fawlty Towers was in the hands of the Inbetweeners and constantly reviewed online.”

With his charming, self-deprecating humour Frenchy has achieved critical acclaim and sold out seasons across Australia, New Zealand and the UK. Don’t miss your chance to see the “riotous, raucous” (The Reviews Hub, UK) Frenchy unleashed upon Australia this September through November!
