Paints a vivid picture

I love the Mark Steel's In Town series. They are both hilarious and enlightening.Steel paints a vivid picture of the towns he visits. Each town comes across as interesting, unique and a bit odd, which seems about right.

Steel's delivery is spot on, and he seems to be a master of connecting with the live audiences at his performances.

Fun and moreish!

Mark Steele has the knack of getting to the heart of every community he visits. He teases affectionately about past and present absurdities, revealing surprising details about Britain and the British along the way. This series is the perfect accompaniment to boring motorway driving. Am buying the rest!

Great Fun and better than any anti-depressant…

Mark Steel’s in Town series are non-stop fun. Whimsical, intelligent, he mixes fact and humour in his trademark style. Please release his many lectures on historical characters, and the new Series 7 soon. Thank you.

Affectionate tourism

A lovely tour of British towns. Steel has a great rapport with his audience. The jokes are affectionate, almost as if the populus are taking a wry look at themselves. For those who like the political Steel - he's still there. But this is wonderful listening for anyone, especially those who have ever been strangers in a strange land. Also genuinely informative!&

He Steels it.

Very entertaining stuff. It's like being there in the theatre yourself, but cheaper. Nice one Mark.
