Mark Thomas: 50 Things About Us

Mark Thomas 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 sh*t show!

Mark Thomas: 50 Things About Us

About Mark Thomas: 50 Things About Us

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.'

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Mark Thomas: 50 Things About Us are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
