"It's The Economy Stupid"

by Mark Thomas

first published 18 March 2009

At the beginning of 2009, activist comedian Mark Thomas decided to do a weekly show about the meltdown of the world's economy. "It's The Economy Stupid" combines stand up comedy with interviews with invited guests -- economists, academics, MPs, trade unionists, journalists (and members of The Corner House) -- on stage to explain what happened, find out what is going on, and explore what we can do about it. He asks some serious questions but the answers are accessible and fun.

The show will be touring the UK later in the year. Click here to find some of the venues.
