MOCK the Week star Milton Jones and political satirist Mark Thomas have both announced gigs in Huddersfield.
The top comedians are set for the Lawrence Batley Theatre later this winter. King of the one-liner, Milton Jones’ Sony Award-winning Radio 4 show The Very World of Milton Jones has enjoyed three successful series.
He has also won the prestigious Perrier Best Newcomer award and has numerous TV appearances including Comedy Cuts (ITV2), Music hall Meltdown (BBC4), 28 Acts (BBC3), The World Stands Up (Comedy Channel), The Comedy Store (Channel 5), Bring Me the Head of Light Entertainment (Channel 5), and The Stand Up Show (BBC1).
His new tour the Lion Whisperer arrives at the LBT on March 12.
Multi-award winning comedian and activist Mark Thomas has so much under his already politically expanded belt that there could not possibly be anything left in this world untouched by his investigations.
Never one to take the easy option, Mark decided to go rambling in the Middle East and walked the entire length of the Israeli Separation Barrier crossing between the Israeli and the Palestinian side.
His new show Extreme Rambling (Walking The Wall) is the story of 300,000 settlers, a 750km wall; six arrests, one stoning, too much hummus and a simple question ... Can you ever get away from it all with a good walk?
Mark will be at Lawrence Batley Theatre on Thursday, February 24.
