Review: Mark Thomas, Bravo Figaro, PULSE Festival

It’s been a while since I was so moved by a production but Mark Thomas’s last ever performance of Bravo Figaro at New Wolsey Theatre succeeded.
The veteran comedian, who has been on the circuit for the last 28 years, performed this one-man show with a winning combination of wit and sensitivity.
In the first half of the show he did a stand-up routine, mainly focused on his political activism work which includes stunts targeting corporate giants.
After the interval, the gig took an entirely different turn with Thomas performing a heartfelt and touching monologue about his father who was a self-employed builder and lover of opera.
His fantastic storytelling ability conveyed his deep emotions and resulted in a show which was poignant and uplifting.
