Andy Parsons: Healing the Nation (tour warm up)

LIMITED AVAILABILITY

Boris Johnson replaces Theresa May as PM. Show REWRITTEN.

The 2019 General Election happens. Show REWRITTEN again.

COVID-19 arrives – show REWRITTEN for the third time. So the 2019/2020 Healing the Nation Tour has become the 2019/2020/2021 Healing the Nation Tour, and as the tour has gone on, there’s been less and less healing and more and more of the opposite.

Admittedly, I could have changed the title but it still seemed strangely appropriate - and some of the gigs have been rescheduled so it would prove confusing to existing ticketholders if the ticket said 'Healing the Nation' but the show was now called 'My Life in Ballet'.

So, we have the serially rewritten Healing the Nation Tour 2019/2020 now extended into 2021, not so much due to popular demand but more lack of open venues. And with negative powers of healing. Yet this latest, very new version of the show is my favourite so far.

Stephen K Amos: Before and Laughter

In 2010 the world was in a sorry state. Fast forward ten years and everything’s still going downhill.

As seen on BBC2's QI and Pilgrimage, ABC TV's The Project and BBC1's Live at the Apollo.

WHY? ‘Truly top class comedian’ EdFest

'Unashamed feel-good entertainment' The Evening Standard

Mark Thomas: 50 Things About Us (Work in Progress)

In his new show 50 Things About Us, Mark Thomas combines his trademark mix of storytelling, stand up, mischief and really, really well researched material to examine how we have come to inhabit this divided wasteland that some of us call the United Kingdom.

Mark picks through the myths, facts and figures of our national identities to ask who do we think we are?

It is a show about money, history, songs, gongs, wigs, unicorns, guns, bungs, sods of soil and rich fuckers.

And how we have so much feeling for such a hollow land.

(In the vein of the Manifesto meets a sweary history channel)

50 Things About Us is also a podcast (coming out in September) and a book published by September Publishing in February 2020 and an art exhibition... in Liverpool January 2020.

Suitable for ages 16+ years.
