Mark Thomas: Showtime from the Frontline

Glasgow Comedy Festival: Name the comedian who might say 'I wonder if I can set up a comedy club... in a refugee camp... in Palestine?' Of course, it’s Mark Thomas!

Mark Thomas: Showtime from the Frontline

About Mark Thomas: Showtime from the Frontline

Dodging cultural and literal bullets, Israeli incursions and religion, Mark Thomas and his team set out to run a comedy club for two nights in the Palestinian city of Jenin. Only to find it’s not so simple to celebrate freedom of speech in a place with so little freedom.

Jenin refugee camp is home to Jenin Freedom Theatre and to people with a wealth of stories to tell. Mark tells this story alongside two of its actors and aspiring comics Faisal Abualheja and Alaa Shehada. A story about being yourself in a place that wants to put you in a box.

Directed by Joe Douglas
Supported by the Theatre Royal Stratford East, ASLEEF, TSSA, FBU, Red Shed and RMT

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Mark Thomas: Showtime from the Frontline are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
