Award-winning sketch comedian Laura Ramoso remounts her electrifying comedy special at Comedy Bar Danforth!
Following a sold-out Toronto premiere and tour through BC, and with over 475,000 followers across social media, decorated comedian Ramoso is so excited to bring back her sketch special in the city that started it all.
“A fast-paced, laugh-out-loud, tour de force…Ramoso is truly a performer to watch.” - SesayArts Magazine
"An absolute riot; full of laughs from start to finish." - A View from the Box
Directed by Second City veteran Alastair Forbes, FRANCES takes Ramoso’s signature physical comedy, satire, mime and critically-acclaimed writing to the nth degree. The show follows Frances on her journey to meet up with her ex-boyfriend, Frank, who has asked her to “talk". As she makes her way through the city, audiences will encounter a variety of unforgettable characters and painfully relatable scenarios.
