Presented by Mark Dean Quinn

Edinburgh Festival Fringe Preview

Directed by Sh!t Theatre’s Rebecca Biscuit

Mark Dean Quinn comes to CPT with his show called Mark Dean Quinn or Observation Without Comedy, he hasn’t decided yet. It is about trust, ice creams and buckets. There are no jokes. Everyone gets sweets.

“I promise one joke that lasts fifty minutes without a punchline and it’s a promise I can deliver on…People have been warned.” Mark Dean Quinn

Mark Dean Quinn is a Malcolm Hardee Cunning Stunt Award nominee for “bringing originality to the vital yet under-rated art of flyering” at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2014.

“A fascinating, poignant and extremely entertaining study in deadpan tragicomedy” Exeunt

“Brilliantly deadpan” Chortle

“People were laughing for some reason” Broadway Baby
