Stand-up mischief and storytelling at its best from Mark Thomas

Stand-up mischief and storytelling at its best from Mark Thomas

Stand-up mischief and storytelling at its best from Mark Thomas at Darwen Library Theatre on Saturday 29th February 2020 at 8pm.

In his new show “50 Things About Us”, Mark Thomas combines his trademark mix of storytelling, stand-up, mischief and really, really well researched material to examine how we have come to inhabit this divided wasteland that some of us call the United Kingdom.

Mark picks 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.
