Francesca is currently developing a feature documentary called What The Hell Is Normal?! which sees her travel around looking for a 'normal' person.

Before becoming a stand-up, Martinez appeared in the BBC children's drama serial Grange Hill for several years, and has acted in other drama series such as Casualty. She has also appeared as a guest on The Frank Skinner Show, and in Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's comedy series Extras.

In 2008, Francesca made global headlines when (live on Channel 4 News) she became the first Olympic torch bearer to pull out of the London relay in protest over China's treatment of Tibet.

Paving the way for performers of all abilities, Francesca’s unique position as a successful mainstream performer is proof she is  breaking down many barriers and changing attitudes.
