MARK THOMAS – Black and White

9 December @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

£17.50

Mark Thomas: Black and White

 

Expect creative fun from one of our oldest surviving alternative comics. Taking down politicians. Mucking about. New ideas and finding HOPE. This award-winning comedian (is there any other type?) asks how did we get here? What are we going to do about it? Who’s up for a sing song? After lockdowns and isolation this show is about the simple act of being in a room together and toppling international capitalism.
