When you first meet Francis, he seems like someone you might love to hate. A tall, Harvard-educated lacrosse player, Francis seems on the outside like the poster boy for arrogance, obnoxiousness, and condescending White privilege. But then he starts talking, and you realize he’s still very much the modest guy from rural Maine with an endearing humility and a healthy dose of self-deprecation. Onstage, Francis speaks to the "challenges" that face a twenty-something in New York -- financial anxiety, relationship angst, and a love-hate relationship with fitness complicated by a love of late-night snacks. When he's not onstage performing standup, Francis (who's also studied improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade) is wandering around New York trying to come up with an answer to his parents' question of why he had to go to Harvard to become a comedian.
