Mark Thomas: 50 Things About Us

PM Live Ltd Proudly Presents Running from
Next event: Saturday 4 April at 8pm
  • Price: £14 - £19
  • Storyhouse Theatre

Mark uses his trademark style of storytelling, standup, subversion and really, really, well researched material to try and find out how the hell we ended up in the middle of this shit 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 standup 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.
