Mark Steel provides tremendous insight about towns across the UK in a way that is both fascinating and hilarious!
I remember mark Steel when he started in stand up. He was a slow-burner but one night compere Arthur smith said after Mark's set, 'mark steel ladies and gentlemen taking the roof off!' He stormed the gig and I became a fan. His radio shows are remarkably different to his stand up and again it took a while for me to like it. I'm now quite an annoying fan of his series as I just don't get how anyone can not like it! Truly brilliant and original work. On a final note; whatever happened to the compere Arthur Smith?

Would you listen to Mark Steel's in Town: Series 3 & 4 Plus Edinburgh Special again? Why?
There is something extraordinarily cathartic about hearing comedy that is clever (not unusual) but also well intentioned; there is nothing cruel or dismissive about this body of work, and yet it is not lightweight or floppy either. This would have to be as engaging a body of work as I have ever heard.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
I bought the next series
What does Mark Steel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I am not aware of a book to buy.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Let me tell you about you.
Any additional comments?
This says there is an Edinburgh special included, but I suspect there may be an error with the recording; not only was there none, but the first episode was repeated (ie, I think that this was done very early on a monday morning after a significantly involved weekend)
