News: Showtime From The Frontline For Mark Thomas

Mark Thomas has announced his next show. And as usual with the prolific comedian, it is very different to his last one.

Showtime From The Frontline tells the story of how Thomas and his team set out to run a comedy club for two nights in the Palestinian city of Jenin. Only to find it’s not so simple to celebrate freedom of speech in a place with so little freedom.
