MARK THOMAS SHOWTIME FROM THE FRONTLINE

Dodging cultural and literal bullets, Israeli incursions and religion, Mark and his team set out to run a comedy club for two nights in the Palestinian city of Jenin. Only to find that it’s not so simple to celebrate freedom of speech in a place with so little freedom.

Jenin refugee camp, home to Jenin Freedom Theatre and to people with a wealth of stories to tell. Mark tells this story alongside two of its actors and aspiring comics, Faisal Abualheja and Alaa Shehada. A story about being yourself in a place that wants to put you in a box.

Volcano Theatre, Thurs 22 February 2018 Tickets from 01792 464790


ED BYRNE: SPOILER ALERT

The star of Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You, The Graham Norton Show, Live At The Apollo, The One Show, Comic Relief Bake Off 2015, The World’s Most Dangerous Roads and most recently Dara and Ed’s Road to Mandalay (the follow up to BBC2’s Dara and Ed’s Great Big Adventure) continues with his total-sell out Fringe show Spoiler Alert.

Ed explores the thin line between righteous complaining and brat-like whining and asks, ‘are we right to be fed up, or are we spoiled?’ Come and watch as Byrne takes this question, turns it upside down and shakes it until the funny falls out.

Wed 7 March 2018 Grand Theatre 01792 475715


SWANSEA CARPET CLEANING READER RECOMMENDATION

Today my elderly mother had her carpets cleaned by Swansea Carpet Cleaning, whose details I found in the Bay magazine.

I wanted to let you know how pleased we both are with the results. The gentleman was so lovely, polite and courteous.
