Mark Thomas returns to Bury for more Mischief

The UK’s favourite political comedian Mark Thomas returns to The Met with new show, 100 Acts Of Minor Dissent, on Wednesday 5 February at 8pm.


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


Following his critically acclaimed theatre show, Bravo Figaro, – which came to The Met in 2012 – Mark set himself the task of committing 100 Acts of Minor Dissent in the space of a year and, on the stroke of midnight 13 May 2014, the task will end.


The show is his catalogue of those acts from the smallest action to the grandest confrontations. The results are hilarious, subversive, mainly legal and occasionally inspiring.


While not on stage, Mark Thomas has produced six series’ of The Comedy Project on Channel 4, presented TV documentaries, written three books, published a manifesto and written a magazine column that caused a diplomatic incident. He has won numerous awards, including a Sony Award and a Time Out Comedy Award.


Tickets to see 100 Acts of Minor Dissent are £14 or £10 for concessions. For more information or to book tickets phone Box Office on 0161 761 2216 or go online at www.themet.biz.
