Doomwatch 16 - Mark Thomas - 100 Acts of Minor Dissent

Doomwatch 16 - Mark Thomas - 100 Acts of Minor Dissent

Tuesday 25 February 2014, live from 2.00pm-3.00pm GMT on Peterborough FM - You are invited to join host alex:g and Text Jockey Lexy Manning for this 16th edition, as they talk with special guest comedian and activist MARK THOMAS, talking about his “100 Acts of Minor Dissent” tour and matters of freedom and liberty. You are now not only able to listen in to DOOMWATCH, but you can also see the show, in-vision, via www.ukcolumn.org/doomwatch

A special one-hour show, we have been lucky to catch Mark right in the middle of his tour. Also on the show to provide expert analysis will be Brian Gerrish and Mike Robinson of the UK Column, and we look forward to your comments about what Mark has to say. 

Over the decades, Mark Thomas has poked his nose into enough things to cause a politician to resign, arms deals to collapse, reform inheritance tax law, force the odd multinational to clean up its act a little and accidentally become Guinness World Record holder for political protests.

Following his critically acclaimed, award-winning and deeply personal theatre show Bravo Figaro, Mark is back to doing what he does best; mischief. On 13th May 2013, Mark set himself the task of committing 100 Acts of Minor Dissent in the space of a year and, on the stroke of midnight 13th May 2014, the task will end. The show is his catalogue of those acts from the smallest action to the grandest confrontations, and just sold out its entire month’s run at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe. The results are hilarious, subversive, mainly legal, occasionally inspiring and, most importantly, soon to be seen in a theatre near you.

In 2010, Mark walked the entire length of the Israeli wall in the West Bank and his subsequent 2011 show, Extreme Rambling: Walking the Wall, went on to tour nationwide from the National Theatre to the North Western Reform Synagogue and was named the Telegraph’s Show of the Year 2011.  His last Edinburgh show, Bravo Figaro,  was his first ever theatre show;  a moving account about his father which was originally commissioned by the Royal Opera House and won Mark a Scotsman Fringe First, a Herald Angel and was broadcast on Radio 4 earlier this year.

With six series on Channel 4, numerous awards, TV documentaries, three books, a published manifesto, a fifth series of Manifesto commissioned for Radio 4, a Sony Award for his show My Life in Serious Organised Crime, a magazine column that caused a diplomatic incident, the occasional arrest (mainly other peoples, though not exclusively), court cases, giving evidence to Parliamentary Select Committees, stopping multinational infrastructure deals and no small amount of messing about, it’s no wonder that Mark is the UK’s favourite political comedian.
