Comedian ready to make his Mark

Multi award-winning comedian and activist Mark Thomas is back on tour and brings his latest show to Derby’s Assembly Rooms on Wednesday, July 6.

His last UK tours, The Manifesto and Stupid Economy, both sold out nationwide and inspired audiences across the UK to voice their own ideals.

The results from Manifesto were published in a pamphlet entitled The People’s Manifesto (Ebury Publishing) and the show was also recorded and broadcast as a Radio 4 series earlier this year. So what next?

Never one to take the easy option, Mark decided to go rambling in the Middle East and walked the entire length of the Israeli Separation Barrier crossing between the Israeli and the Palestinian side. This is the story of 300,000 settlers, a 750km wall, six arrests, one stoning, too much hummus and a simple question: can you ever get away from it all with a good walk?
