In his new show 50 Things About Us Mark Thomas combines his trademark mix of storytelling, standup, mischief and really, really well researched material to examine how we have come to inhabit this divided wasteland that some of us call the United Kingdom.

Mark picks through the myths, facts and figures of our national identities to ask who do we think we are?

It is a show about money, history, songs, gongs, wigs, unicorns, guns, bungs, sods of soil and rich f*****s.

And how we have so much feeling for such a hollow land.

(In the vein of the Manifesto meets a sweary history channel)

This show was rescheduled from 31st March 2021 (originally 20th September 2020 / 19th March 2020).
