FRED FRENCZI

Silver Comedy Finalist 2016

"Ferenczi, pronounced Frenzy, could become quite the cult. He’s a dopey old duffer who you could imagine as one of the villagers in the Vicar of Dibley, though even more strange. He promises a ‘rollercoaster of gaiety and glee’ that his distracted absent-mindedness, nervously fiddling with tissues and bits of string, can’t hope to match." (Chortle)
