Mark has written numerous comedy shows and has performed them at festivals around the world.

NEW SHOW FOR 2017

If a man holds open a door for a woman, is he gentlemanly, sexist or is he letting a bad smell escape?

Is pulling out a chair for a lady only acceptable if it’s pulled out really far and she falls over?

What does it take to be a modern day gentleman?
