NOT long ago, it seemed highly unlikely the UK would vote to leave the EU.

We had a reasonable opposition to the Tory Government, Donald Trump was a buffoon who surely wasn’t going to beat Hilary Clinton, and Mark Steel was living the married suburban ideal.

Since then, it’s all gone to downhill. But don’t worry, as Mark thinks Every Little Thing’s Gonna Be Alright.

Mark said: “Stand-up is not like film or theatre in that it can change during the run. You drop a bit here, and add a bit there, so by the end of the tour you may have a show that’s different at least in parts.

“But the new show is still essentially about me being chipper in the face of some miserable events.”

Mark’s sell-out show Who Do I Think I Am revealed that his natural father was a world backgammon champion.

Now the star of Radio 4’s Mark Steel’s in Town, and newspaper columnist of the year, Mark is back on the road with a new show that is guaranteed to make the world seem even more mental than it really is.

Mark has written and presented many series of Mark Steel’s In Town on BBC Radio 4 and toured it live around the UK.

He has presented the BAFTA-nominated Mark Steel Lectures for BBC2, and is a regular on BBC One’s Have I Got News For You and Radio 4’s The News Quiz.

He has written several acclaimed books, including Reasons To Be Cheerful and What’s Going On, and writes a weekly column for The Independent – for which he won Columnist of the Year at the Press Awards in 2015.

Mark Steel will be at The Playhouse theatre in Weston-super-Mare on Thursday, March 5.
