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!

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.
