"Fran Garrity has an easy and instant rapport with the audience and not only gets frequent laughs but also they are always big laughs. "
"Fran is a real act to watch out for."
"His self-deprecating stuff about his Teeside heritage was gritty and punchy, backed up with a keenness in observation and a good turn-of-phrase."
Undeniably one of the North East’s finest comedic exports of recent years, Teesside-based comic Fran Garrity kicked off his comedy career in 2015 after becoming a finalist in the City Comedian of the Year & FAF Breakthrough Act.
Often heard on the airwaves of both national and regional radio, Fran has featured on such shows as BBC Radio 4’s New Comedy Awards and BBC Radio Newcastle’s features Jesting About and Grin up North.
2017 saw Fran chosen for a support slot with Jason Manford on his Muddle Class Tour and later that year he debuted his solo show Secret Agent Fran and became a finalist in the Harrogate Comedian of the Year.
