English comedian, presenter, political satirist and journalist Mark Thomas spoke to Jason McCrossan about his latest show that he is touring the UK with called THE RED SHED which he is performing at the Gulbenkian theatre in Canterbury on 17th February.
The show celebrates the 50th anniversary of Wakefield Labour Club’s iconic Red Shed. It’s the story of where Mark first started to perform in public and where he politically came of age as a student involved in the miners’ strike.
Comedy comes in all shapes and sizes and nothing comes bigger and bolder than Marc Wootton’s character Shirley Ghostman.
Shirley, who is not gay, just a tad camp, is as outrageous as she is a spectacular failure at all things psychic – but she does make for good comedy, even if sometimes very uncomfortable!
Monday Matters with Jason McCrossan is broadcast on 106.9 SFM in Kent. On the show tonight we hear the latest news from around the world; the latest from the Oscars and the featured artist is Buddy Holly who would have toured in the UK from 1st March 1958 – and it would be less than a year later the 22 year old was killed in a plane crash.
In the final hour – we play more Buddy Holly songs and hear interviews from his short, but amazingly productive life.
