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.
