TW:TALKS @ ED2016: Mark Thomas
By Chris Cooke | Published on Thursday 18 August 2016
To celebrate 21 years of ThreeWeeks covering the Edinburgh Festival, we launch TW:TALKS by interviewing five former cover stars. This week, Mark Thomas, who appeared on the cover of ThreeWeeks in our very first year, all the way back in 1996.
Having first visited the Edinburgh Festival in 1982, and first performed at the Fringe in 1984, Mark has been a regular at the festival for three decades, and especially in recent years with his hugely acclaimed shows that combine comedy, theatre and aspects of journalism.
Listen to Mark discuss his memories of the Edinburgh Fringe from 1982 onwards, as well as discussing his progression as a performer, all the way up to his new show, ‘The Red Shed’, which is on at the Traverse through to the end of the Fringe before a UK-wide tour.
