This is Mark’s true story of cake icing as a political weapon, of demonstrations to Defend Surrealism, and of getting to like the Police. Mark turns an 18 month battle over Parliament Square and the right to demonstrate into a bizarrely brilliant stand up show. This is how Mark fought the law …with the law’s permission.
It’s a laugh-out-loud funny world inhabited by anarchists, goths and artists, in which Mark becomes a Guinness World Record holder, organises 2,500 protests in one day and changes the law in the process.
After the show, Mark will be back with a live presentation to let us know what happened next.
And then we will have a Q+A - please leave your questions in the chatroom as the show is on.
The show will be captioned alongside BSL.
Please note: All live stream events are subject to change. Not all events listed are live performances by the artist - they also include archived concerts, DJ sets, masterclasses, Q&As and more.
