Following a total sellout run last festival and a UK tour, Mark Steel is back at the Edinburgh Fringe this year with his highly acclaimed show Every Little Thing’s Gonna Be Alright.
This time two years ago, it seemed highly unlikely that 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 was living the married suburban ideal.
Two years later it’s all gone to absolute ****! But don’t worry, Mark thinks everything’s gonna be alright.
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, is reflective and positive in this thoroughly uplifting show.
Mark has written and presented many series of Mark Steel’s in Town on BBC Radio 4, and toured it live around the UK.
Mark 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 Newsquiz.
He’s also appeared on BBC2’s QI and Room 101. Mark has written several acclaimed books, including Reasons to Be Cheerful and What’s Going On, and he writes a weekly column for The Independent – for which he won Columnist of the Year at the Press Awards in 2015.
