Mark Thomas: Swindon Arts Centre

Mark has been on a journey of discovery in the company of arms dealers, torture victims, ex-SAS officers, spooks and geeks.

This show is the deeply funny, deeply disturbing journey of Mark’s rampage through the arms trade. Under a fairly flimsy disguise and with the use of some worryingly poor accents, Mark managed to set himself up as an arms dealer, a PR adviser on the most sensitive of human rights issues and generally did what he does best, which is to annoy the right people. As he works out deals, brokers torture equipment, and advises armies he discovers just how easy it is to avoid the law.

Hard hitting, laugh out loud funny and shockingly entertaining, Mark Thomas is never anything less than compulsive.

Tickets: £14, Swindon Card £12.50, Party Booking £12, Comedy Cracker £11.

We are all in this together, but some of us are more in it than others (with apologies to George Orwell)
