ED2012 Comedy Review: Mark Cooper-Jones – Geography Teacher – Free (PBH’s Free Fringe)

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Is Easter Island a country? I don’t know…but 33.3% of WitTank, and part-time geography teacher, Mark Cooper-Jones does. If geography made you snore at school you’ll be wetting yourself with laughter at Mr Cooper-Jones’ silly classroom anecdotes, educational puns and his terrifyingly funny teacher persona. This free show is a must-see, and the concept behind it is absolutely capital. Although, you may want to brush up on your geography beforehand, as Mr Cooper-Jones has an afternoon of geography fun in store – you’ll easel-y enjoy yourselves! This show definitely deserves five gold stars, and this formidable sketch and stand-up comedian is sooper-cooper.

The Cabaret Voltaire, 1-24 August (not 14, 20), 3.50pm.
