An Audience with Howard Marks

Howard Marks has worked with the British Secret Service and has been connected to the Mafia, the IRA, MI6, and the CIA. In 1988 he was caught by the American Drug Enforcement Agency and was sentenced to 25 years at one of America’s toughest federal penitentiaries: Terre Haute in Indiana, but was released in 1995 after serving just seven years. After releasing his autobiography Mr Nice in 1996, Marks has since toured talking about cannabis trafficking and sharing his liberal opinions. With the imminent release of Bernard Rose’s film, entitled Mr Nice, Marks is going face to face with the public to share his experiences.

Kevin Bridges

This young Glaswegian is quickly becoming one of the best known comedians on the TV. With a sell out show at the 2009 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the last 12 months have flown by in a whirlwind of success.
