Brighton Comedy Festival: Bravo Figaro!: Mark Thomas
After walking the wall in the West Bank, becoming Guinness World Record holder for political protests and chasing arms dealers around the country Mark Thomas turns his attention to matters closer to home with a show about his father.
First commissioned by the Royal Opera house Bravo Figaro is the true tale of a self-employed builder's love of opera, degenerative illness and how to put opera on in a bungalow in Bournemouth.
It is about love, death and the search for peace in an imperfect world ... with some gags thrown in for luck and told by one of the finest storytellers in the country.

This event takes place at Brighton Dome, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
TV's comedy guerilla with his own shrewd take on governmental and corporate exploitation. 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 to be.
'A brilliantly crafted hour... beautiful and heartfelt' (Metro)
'A brand of comedy that carries a far weightier purpose than to simply generate laughs... Cuckooed leaves a lasting impression' (Sunday Herald)
'A clever, funny and angry show... an excoriating, heartfelt monologue... Thomas the polemicist deploys the comedian's eye for a situation's dark absurdities' (The Guardian)
'Thomas's show ruefully tots up the cost of personal betrayal' (Sunday Times)
'Bracing, brilliant and necessary... Mark Thomas is the most intelligent of the modern leftist stand-ups... an unmissable hour' (Theatre Cat).
