Comedy has a New Monster! 

It was only a matter of time before someone built the first Fully Reactive Automated Non-Alcoholic Comedian. He’s going to make you laugh. Whether you like it or not. 

F.R.A.N.C. is a sharp satire on the very function of funny. 

Inspired by Hammer Film Productions award winning writer Keir McAllister has teamed up with John McGlade (Only An Excuse, Breaking The News, Clive Anderson Talks Back) to create an updated homage to the classic Frankenstein story. With the addition of our stellar cast of comedy actors including; JoJo Sutherland, Joe McTernan, directed by Paul Sneddon and featuring the voice of Tom Stade this production - IS ALIVE! 

Watch This Space Productions unique ethos of casting from Scotland’s thriving comedy community ensure that the performance has big laughs while tackling some of the darker aspects of the human condition. 

McAllister said “...every year we’ve tried to up our game - F.R.A.N.C. is without a doubt our most ambitious project to date, not just because of the bigger cast and technology involved but because of the subjects we are tackling. Everything from internet bullying to extremism to the comedy industry itself - F.R.A.N.C. is a comedy - but its also bold and angry. I’m looking forward to seeing how that will play out with the audience we have built over the last few years...” 

Stade said “...this is easily the best commentary on the formulaic fabric of the comedy scene we know today and I had to be part of it....if I can be F.R.A.N.C.”
