Two years of intensive lockdown have given Mark Banks more material than he can possibly cope with, and that’s not just on his face. Discerning audiences will find everything from Shakespeare to ‘do-it-yourself’ home surgery, caring for your pets in quarantine, how to sell your house without show-days, and the world’s first ‘drive through’ funeral.


Mark Banks has been at the forefront of South African comedy for many years with a particular flavour of comedy that will leave you rolling in the isles – socially distanced, of course. His range of comedy has covered radio, film, and television, both locally and internationally.


He is best remembered for the standing ovation he garnered at the Royal Albert Hall. This was closely followed by a triumphant appearance at the Trans-Kalahari Gemsbok Park laughter tunnel, to a convulsed audience of indigenous stand-up Khoisan comedians who unanimously awarded him the coveted Golden Bow and Arrow, the highest honour yet bestowed on a one-man comedy performer.

Banks is an avid bee-keeper, bird watcher, and interior decorator. His most recent decorating achievement involved re-tiling the entrance to the Houses of Parliament, with 37,000 Scrabble tiles.


Banks has a few surprises in store for the un-laughing and any other latecomers. He is at present in sensitive negotiation with the Hirsch furniture organization for one lucky patron to take home a state-of-the-art AEG voice-activated tumble drier and 15 piece sushi double-edge knife set compliments of China City, Cyrildene.
