Every Little Thing's Gonna Be Alright: Mark Steel
This time last year, it seemed highly unlikely the UK would vote to leave the EU; we had a reasonable opposition to the Tory Government; Donald Trump was a buffoon who surely wasn't going to beat Hilary Clinton and Mark was living the married suburban ideal, a year later it's all gone to absolute shit! But don't worry, as Mark thinks Every Little Thing's Gonna Be Alright.
A heavyweight political comedian of a Marxist slant, Mark Steel has performed as a stand-up comedian on the British comedy circuit and on national tours since the '80s.
He has also written and performed The Mark Steel Solution and The Mark Steel Lecture for Radio 4, hosted Radio 5's Extra Time and produced the best selling book Reasons to be Cheerful. He writes a weekly column for The Independent for which he won Columnist of the Year at the Press Awards in 2015.
'He's a man with a passionate desire to communicate his ideas, who is also very funny' (The Guardian).
Mark Steel was placed in Ents24's top 5 hardest-working comedians 2016.
