Campaigning comic comes to Frome

Story posted on

Campaigning comic Mark Thomas looks at how we have come to inhabit this divided wasteland that some of us call the United Kingdom as he heads to the Merlin Theatre on 7th March.

About the show, titled ‘50 Things About Us’, promoters say, “Mark uses his trademark style of storytelling, stand-up, subversion and really, really, well researched material to try and find out how the hell we ended up in the middle of this.

“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 half-way 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.”

Mark Thomas comes to the Merlin Theatre on Saturday 7th March. Visit the website for more details: www.merlintheatre .co.uk
