Mark Steel – Who Do I Think I Am
‘The most well-crafted and poignant comedy turns at this year’s Fringe’ ~ The Herald
‘He has got an amazing tale to tell’ ~ The Guardian
It never really bothered me that I’d never met my mum.
It never occurred to me I needed to meet her to ‘find out who I was’, as it didn’t seem likely I’d discover I was someone different to who I thought I was. Could it turn out I was three stone lighter than I thought, or I spoke Italian or supported Arsenal or had a fear of Liquorice Allsorts?
But after the birth of my own son, I realised it’s quite an event to have a child, and she may well remember giving birth to me, and maybe even the adoption.
See Mark Steel in his newest stand up show, a surprising and enthralling story told with aplomb. Suitable for ages 14+.
Previously, Mark wrote and presented Mark Steel’s In Town on BBC Radio4 and toured it live around the UK. He presented the BAFTA nominated Mark Steel Lectures for BBC2 and is a regular on BBC1’s Have I Got News For You and Radio4’s Newsquiz. He’s also appeared on BBC2’s QI and Room 101. Mark has also written several acclaimed books and he writes a weekly column for The Independent for which he won Columnist Of The Year at the 2015 Press Awards.
