Mark Banks has come out of hibernation to bring you his new one man stand up show – Mark Banks On Ice! Some nights the Russian All-Star Mints will make a guest appearance.

This year Mark is turning sixty and would love you to come celebrate his birthday with him in what is his favourite way to celebrate: You staring at him longingly and laughing as he talks nonstop for over an hour without anyone talking back to him.

Mark Banks has no idea how these random, outrageous, sometimes obscene thoughts come to him, they just do.  Sometimes they come in the form of a dream and other times in the form of a Rottweiler with his grandmother’s face. Both are equally terrifying but he will continue to pursue these thoughts in order to bring you the best in his particular brand of wildly entertaining comedy.

In this completely new show, he will discuss all the things you’ve been thinking about – extreme Jo’burg security measures; Elon Musk’s plans for world domination, running into people from your high school who haven’t died yet and coping with life in general!

In Mark Banks on Ice, Mark will amaze you with jokes while jete-ing across the stage; he will wow you with his intellect while pirouetting on one toe; he will stun you with moves that don’t even have a name in French.

Will there be characters? Yes. Will there be plot twists? Definitely. Will there be ice? Hard to say.
