‘ A brilliantly crafted hour… beautiful and heartfelt’ Metro
Comedy’s elder statesman and all-round mischief-maker Mark Thomas tells his true story of how Britain’s biggest arms manufacturer, BAE Systems, came to spy on a comedian.
Over the years, Mark has investigated everything from Coca-Cola to inheritance tax avoidance. He has stopped multinational infrastructure deals, given evidence to Parliamentary Select Committees and been arrested countless times.
Cuckooed is his second one-man theatre show, which has already won a Scotsman Fringe First award, the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression award and a raft of five-star reviews. Mark will perform 30 minutes of stand-up before his impassioned tale of hubris, planes, demos and undercover deceit begins.
