Mark Thomas has appeared at numerous comedy benefit nights, and is a well established stand-up comedian in the UK. He attempts to answer some of the more pressing questions about the state we are in.
Is Britain the new Iceland?
If we own a couple of banks can we lend ourselves money and use their phones to call Australia?
And what on earth is a “derivative” and is it possible to use the word without also mentioning “Keane” and “Travis”?
For his 'It's The Stupid Economy' UK tour in 2009, Mark played 55 shows over 14 weeks and encouraged each audience to come up with their own policies (be it silly or serious) that would somehow make their lives better. Each member of the audience were then able to vote on their favourite policy of that evening and the winning suggestion was then formed as part of his manifesto which he campaigned for and attempted to actually make at least some of the suggestions become reality.
A unique show not to be missed!
