Funny Way To Be Comedy – Mark Thomas – 50 Things About Us (16+)
Mark uses his trademark style of storytelling, stand-up, subversion and really, really, well researched material to try and find out how we ended up in the middle of this show.
50 Things About Us is a show about songs, gongs, loot, tradition, wigs, nicking, statues, art and identity. A sort of funny national edition of Who Do You Think You Are?
Mark says, “Look, I have been doing this for 34 years. I have gone from stand-up to theatre and halfway back again. It’s another slightly odd show, a sort of sweary, History Channel with laughs and creative mischief. If you’ve seen my shows before, this one is going to be a show in the vein of 100 Acts of Minor Dissent.”
Concession tickets are intended for people with low income or students irrespective of age.
