MARK THOMAS

“Gaffer Tapes” – tour show  

Mark Thomas is 61 and has been doing stand up and theatre for 39 years and this show is back to stand up. Jokes, rants, politics, play and the occasional sing song. If you don’t know what he does ask your parents.
In his time he has won awards (current total is now officially ‘fuckloads’), forced a politician to resign, changed the laws on tax and protest, become the Guinness Book of Records world record holder for number of protests in 24 hours, taken the police to court 3 times and won, walked the length of the Israeli Wall in the West Bank and generally mucked about trying to have fun and fuck the right people off.
This show is more of the above. 
“One of the few stand-ups still to carry the political standard of alternative comedy.”  – CHORTLE

TICKETS: £15 plus booking fee
