Influential activist and comic comes to the Artrix
3:00pm Wednesday 17th October 2012 in News
AFTER walking the wall in the West Bank, becoming Guinness World Record holder for political protests, and chasing arms dealers around the country, one of Britain’s most acclaimed comics is coming to Bromsgrove.
Mark Thomas, also an influential activist, will be turning his attention to matters closer to home with a show about his father.
First commissioned by London’s prestigious Royal Opera House, Bravo Figaro is the true tale of Mark’s father.
He was a self-employed builder with a passion for opera, but also had a degenerative illness, progressive supranuclear palsy.
The show is also about love, death, fathers and sons, and the search for peace in an imperfect world, with a few gags thrown in for luck.
Mark’s biography is too long to list in detail but it includes numerous awards, several television documentaries, three books, a series on Radio 4, a Medal of Honour, and battling multinational corporations.
He will be coming to the Artrix on October 22.
