Nottingham’s Lakeside Arts Centre to host comedian Mark Thomas for trademark mix of storytelling, stand-up, mischief and well researched material
In his latest show 50 Things About Us, comedian Mark Thomas combines his trademark mix of storytelling, stand-up, mischief and well-researched material.
He examines how we have come to inhabit this divided wasteland that some call the United Kingdom.
He will pick through the myths, facts and figures of our national identities to ask how we have so much feeling for such a hollow land. Who do we think we are?
It is a show about money, history, songs, gongs, wigs, unicorns, guns, bungs, sods of soil and rich people in the vein of The Manifesto-meets-sweary history channel.
50 Things About Us is also a podcast, and was published as a book last year by September Publishing.
Mark, who has produced numerous books and television series, will bring his live show to Nottingham’s Lakeside Arts Centre on Wednesday and Thursday (October 7 and 8).
