A WELL-KNOWN comedian is set to host an online live stream show for Pocklington Arts Centre.

Following the success of his lockdown live stream of Bravo Figaro, Mark Thomas brings his acclaimed 2018 ‘Showtime From the Frontline’ to fans’ screens with a live stream followed by a live Q&A.

Inspired by Thomas’s time spent walking the length of the Israeli wall in the West Bank in 2009, a time when he was arrested, fell down mountains, slept in the middle of an Israeli firing range, in the pursuit of trying to talk to as many people as possible to find out what was going on.

It was a journey that included a visit to the Jenin Freedom Theatre in a refugee camp, run by Juliano Mher Khemis – a half-Palestinian, half-Israeli actor.

It was a meeting that started a decade long relationship with a theatre that resulted in Showtime from the Frontline.

Mark said: “Showtime from The Frontline, the story of how to be yourself when everyone else wants to put you in a box.”

Mark will be performing the show on Tuesday June 9 from 7.30pm. Twenty per cent of proceeds will go towards Pocklington Arts Centre.
