Mark Thomas: 100 Acts of Minor Dissent
Mark Thomas is well versed in the art of creative mayhem and over the years his troublemaking has changed laws, cost companies millions and annoyed those who most deserved it. Now he returns to what he does best: mischief – joyously bad behaviour with a purpose. After his award-winning show Bravo Figaro, Mark tasks himself with committing 100 Acts of Minor Dissent in the space of a year. Mark catalogues everything from the smallest and silliest gesture to the grandest confrontations and the results are subversive, hilarious, mainly legal and occasionally inspiring.
Mark is well known for his brand of political comedy which has seen him appear on TV and Radio from appearing regularly on the ground breaking The Mary Whitehouse Experience (Radio1), Mark Thomas: The Manifesto (Radio 4), The Mark Thomas Comedy Product (Channel 4) and many more. He was nominated for the prestigious Perrier Comedy Award in 1992.
His last Edinburgh show “Bravo Figaro” explored his relationship with his father and brought a fistful of five star reviews.
“Well-written, thoughtful, moving and brilliantly performed”- The Scotsman *****
“irrepressible personality, story-telling and stand-up skills” –The Telegraph
“Absolutely superlative stuff” -Chortle
***** -The List
**** 1/2 – Edinburgh Is funny
Plus a preview of Jack De’Ath and Bob Fletcher’s show “Bob and Jack Get Dangerous”
Bob and Jack Get Dangerous?
Regular host of Laugh Out London and an emerging versatile comic of charm, props and pasta. There maybe Caramac involved, there may not. His off-beat humor often uses silly drawing and games, which has lead him to be described as “slightly surreal” by a number of people.
“The shenanigans show promise” – Chortle
“Engaging gems of originality and comic charm” – comedyblogedy.com
“He’s already very very good” – We Love Comedy
Bob made his stand-up debut in February 2010, supported by several established acts including Robin Ince at the ‘My First Gig‘ event. He’s been performing regularly since.
