Not so long ago, it seemed highly unlikely 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. Then... it all went to absolute s***! But don't worry - Mark assures us that Every Little Thing's Gonna Be Alright.
Mark's sell-out show Who Do I Think I Am, revealed 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 back on the road with a new show, guaranteed to make the world seem even more mental than it is.
Mark has written and presented many series of Mark Steel's In Town on BBC Radio 4 (new series out soon) and toured it live around the UK. He has presented the BAFTA nominated Mark Steel Lectures for BBC2, is a regular on BBC One's Have I Got News for You and Radio 4's Newsquiz. Mark has also appeared on BBC2's QI and Room 101. He has written several acclaimed books, including: Reasons to Be Cheerful and What's Going On and writes a weekly column for The Independent for which he won Columnist of the Year at the Press Awards in 2015.
