Mark Thomas – Extreme Rambling (Walking The Wall) (Phil McIntyre Entertainments)

By | Published on Saturday 20 August 2011

It’s a rainy evening but the Bongo’s main room is filled to capacity and it becomes quickly apparent why. Mark Thomas explodes on stage with so much enthusiasm and energy the audience is instantly enthralled. His two-hour performance charts his walk from one end of the Israeli-Palestinian separation wall to the other, detailing the characters he meets and trouble he brews for himself along the way. Thomas mixes the intensely interesting educational aspect of his show with excellent impressions and showmanship which always hits the mark. It’s incredibly refreshing to watch something crafted with an obvious purpose and fronted by someone with the confidence and charisma to make for a very enjoyable evening.

The Bongo Club, 8 – 20 Aug, 7.30pm (9.30pm), £10.00 (£14.50), fpp115.
