Alan Francis – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2002

Review by Steve Bennett

As smooth, classy and elegant as a vintage Scotch, laconic Francis is a seductive performer.

His mellow tales are infused with wit and smartly wry observations, and he sure knows how to spin a yarn, with material that has been polished over the years.

However, his unchanging set is starting to show its age in places - a creaky old routine about Sean Connery's limited accent repertoire and a dog-eared routine about legalise cannabis marches (complete with predictable 'munchies' denouement) ­ let down the otherwise top-quality material.
