A comic is bringing his new show to Radlett later this month.

In his new show, 50 Things About Us, comedian Mark Thomas combines his trademark mix of storytelling, stand-up, mischief and research to examine how we have come to inhabit a divided United Kingdom.

Mark picks through the myths, facts and figures of our national identities. It’s a show about money, history, songs, gongs, wigs, unicorns, guns and rich people in the vein of The Manifesto meets sweary history channel.

An unstoppable force both on and off-stage, Mark has stopped arms deals, created a manifesto and brought the winning policy to parliament, walked the entire length of the Israeli wall in the West Bank, set up a comedy club in Jenin, had six series on Channel 4 alongside several television documentaries and radio series, written some books, grabbed a Guinness World Record, toured sell-out tours, won numerous awards, nabbed himself a Medal of Honour and succeeded in changing some laws along the way.
