Product placement at the Electric Palace

COMEDIAN, journalist and polemicist Mark Thomas has revived a television show which was supposed never to be repeated – and Bridport’s Electric Palace on Sunday 3rd April is the only date in the area where you can catch it.

Before Joe Lycett, The Revolution Will be Televised, Lee Nelson, Dom Joly and Balls of Steel, The Mark Thomas Comedy Product set the agenda. Challenging corporations, exposing corruption, ending MPs’ careers and setting up a PR company at an arms fair, Thomas’s show is said to have “changed the law on tax and inherited wealth and used just about every conceivable military vehicle in the cause of comedy.”

Showing his favourite clips and explaining what went on behind the scenes, Mark tells the story in all its glory – from the risqué to the risky – in a cinematic live experience of mischief, adventure, and seven years of gunning for the corrupt with a camera crew in tow.

Later in the spring, Mark is touring another show, 50 Things About Us, to Bath Rondo, on 28th-29th April, Swindon Arts Centre  on18th May and the Cedars Hall at Wells, on 20th May.
