Religion and Netflix, ­alcohol, gorilla sex and emojis are given an Italian flavour and you find yourself smiling at Francesco’s thoughts on how people ruin everything, his inability to enjoy a bit of weed and why it is so hard to ­succeed as a stand-up in Italy.

He is confident, and owns his stage in a friendly, relaxed way. There are some great lines and you could do very much worse than spend an hour with Francesco.

Until 28 August. Today 9:20pm.
