Update: this event has been postponed from its original date.  We have contacted all bookers who had a ticket for the original date, if you’ve not heard from us please email ticketing@storyhouse.com

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.
