Francesco De Carlo
Francesco made his Edinburgh debut in 2014 with Italians Do It Later having toured with the Comedy Sans Frontieres project alongside Eddie Izzard and Dylan Moran, and recorded the International Showcase for Comedy Central in Montreal in July 2015, which was the first stand-up comedy show in English to be broadcast in Italy.
High profile in his native Italy as the former host of the biggest show on Radio Globo in Rome, as well as multiple series of Stand Up Comedy for Comedy Central Italy and two further series this year as writer and performer, in 2015-2016 his English speaking comedy career took him to the UK, South Korea, Slovenia, Canada, Norway, South Africa and Switzerland!
Now based in London, last Autumn saw Francesco become the European correspondent on Unspun with Matt Forde on Dave, and support Tommy Tiernan on his U.K. tour. He recently appeared in Paul Hollywood’s Big Continental Road Trip (BBC2) and The Arts Hour On Tour (BBC World Service). He has just completed performing his critically acclaimed new show, Comfort Zone, at the Edinburgh Fringe 2017. Rai3 in Italy commissioned his own series, Tutta Culpa Della Brexit (Blame it on Brexit), charting Francesco’s experiences as an Italian comedian living in London during the Brexit negotiations which is currently airing this December. He has just taken part in Trending Comics as part of the Montreux Comedy Festival and will soon be heard on the upcoming BBC Radio 4 series Welcome to Wherever You Are.
