Will Franken

Will Franken is a London-based comedian specialising in high-speed, quick-change character comedy with an emphasis on politically incorrect satire. His work has been featured on BBC America, Radio 4, and Channel 4 and has been praised on both sides of the Atlantic in such publications as The New York Times, The Guardian, The Times of London, The Scotsman, Spiked, and many others.

In 2015, Franken spent seven months living as a trans-female named Sarah before realising the lifestyle wasn’t for him and has since written about his experiences in The London Evening Standard and The Independent. He holds an MA in English from Southwest Missouri State University with a focus on Restoration and 18th century British literature. The late Robin Williams once said of him, “Will Franken is a master of delusion, an id unchained. He is also very funny.” Clips of his stage performances as well as links to his highly-acclaimed podcast, Things We Did Before Reality, can be found at www.willfranken.com
