Hello Gang!

Before you donate please ensure you read paragraph 2. I wanna make sure your money goes where you intend. Armed with nothing but a tiny backpack, a water proof sleeping-bag and a cell phone, ex-Irish army officer and professional standup comedian Francis Cronin (that's me!) must cover the 500 miles from San Francisco to Los Angeles on foot over the freezing cold holiday season, performing live standup comedy and storytelling along the way, all while sleeping out rough under the stars. And as if that isn't enough, he'll be creating content in the form of daily videos and podcasts. Will he make it to LA alive? Who will he meet along the way? Will Hollywood embrace him upon arrival? Tune in and find out as Francis Cronin, a stranger in a strange land manifests his destiny one step at a time. 

Paragraph 2: )
N.B. The money raised by this Go Fund Me account will go directly towards the production and post production costs to make a Rough Set pilot. So if you want to do that click one of the golden buttons and donate...I’ll be super grateful.  If you would like to donate directly to my chosen charity rather than the production click on the following link for Homeless Health Care Los Angeles and send them some cash. I won’t see a penny of that. That’s all good too :

From this walk, the events along the way and the content generated on this journey I hope to drive even greater attention and funds to Homeless Health Care Los Angeles.  



This is gonna be an old school grass roots operation, helping each other. Here is a list of the ways you can get involved.

#1. VISUALS: Help me shoot, edit, produce epic visuals. I’ll have a lot of eyes on me and I am happy to put that attention on your awesome work. Cinematographers/Vloggers/Bloggers/Photographers LET’S DO THIS!!!

#2. SHOWS: Are you a local comedian or party ANIMAL who wants to put on a show, I’ll appear, hopefully with some camera collaborators and we’ll make you and your crew part of the expedition.

#3. RADIO/TV/PODCAST/PRESS: You got the followers I got the EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW. Hit me up and I’ll give you the MOST EPIC AUTHENTIC interview you’ll ever get on record.

#4. WALK WITH ME: Join me for a leg. A little like Forrest Gump’s cross country run but way more talkative let’s walk some miles together and chat it up. But remember my lovelies I’ll be moving like the wind so you better be a fit little fiddle or on a bike. For the slower people we can just do ice cream.

#5. SPREAD THE WORD: You may not be able to get involved yourself but you may know someone who would love to be. Please tag friends who would LOVE to be a part of this madness.

P.S. I’ll be collaborating with creatives the whole way down the west coast to LA. So if you are between SF AND LA I wanna hear from YOU!!! Even if you just wanna let me use your shower. I’m pretty sure I’m gonna get sick of sprinkler systems pretty quick. Can’t wait to hear from you! Thanks for the positivity.
