Making a return to Lewis later this year, comedian Mark Steel is taking his 'Who Do I Think I Am' tour on the road to the Highlands and Islands.
Beyond Presents are delighted to bring Mark and his newest stand up show to venues throughout the Highlands and Islands – including a stop at An Lanntair on Friday, November 11th.
A surprising and enthralling story, told with aplomb, Mark said of his new show: “It never really bothered me that I'd never met my mum.
“It never occurred to me I needed to meet her to 'find out who I was', as it didn't seem likely I'd discover I was someone different to who I thought I was. Could it turn out I was three stone lighter than I thought, or I spoke Italian or supported Arsenal or had a fear of Liquorice Allsorts?
“But after the birth of my own son, I realised it's quite an event to have a child, and she may well remember giving birth to me, and maybe even the adoption.”
Previously Mark has written and presented 'Mark Steel's In Town' on Radio 4 and toured it live around the UK – including his last visit to Stornoway in 2012.
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'; and has written several, acclaimed books, including 'Reasons To Be Cheerrful' and 'What's Going On'.
He also writes a weekly column for The Independent for which he won Columnist of the Year at the Press Awards in 2015.
