POPULAR comedian Mark Steel is to perform in Cirencester later this year.

The comedian will be returning to the town as part of his Every Little Thing’s Gonna Be Alright UK tour.

Previously, Mark has written and presented 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, 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.

When Mark toured his highly successful Every Little Thing's Gonna Be Alright in 2018, his outlook was wonderfully hopeful despite the show describing when Donald Trump won the White House, the Labour Party seemed a busted flush, Britain voted to leave the EU, and his wife decided to leave him.

Now he's back on the road with a reworked and updated version of the show and he explains how it came about.

“Stand-up is not like film or theatre in that it can change during the run,” Mark says.

“You drop a bit here, and add a bit there, so by the end of the tour you may have a show that's different at least in parts.

"But the new show is still essentially about me being chipper in the face of some miserable events.”

The show will take place on May 2, 8pm, at the Sundial Theatre.

Tickets are £15 and available from www.sundial-theatre.co.uk/
