★★★★★ ‘A master of this type of entertainment…’ The Arts Desk

 ★★★★ ‘This is a show that comes from the guts’ The Telegraph

 ★★★★ ‘Righteous, moving and funny… Mark Thomas should be on prescription’ The Herald

Mark 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 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 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.’

Presented by Phil McIntyre Live
