Mark Thomas is one of the UK's most effective and best-known political acti vists, as well as being a highly successful stand-up comedian. His show, Th e Mark Thomas Product, ran for six highly acclaimed series on Channel Four. Amazingly, this is his first book. As Used On the Famous Nelson Mandela is a deeply funny, deeply disturbing account of Mark's rampage through the ar ms trade. Under a fairly flimsy disguise and with the use of some worryingl y poor accents, Mark sets off on a journey of discovery in the company of a rms dealers, torture victims, politicians, cops, crusties and geeks. The re sult is a shockingly entertaining read. Embedded within the sharpness of hi s humour is the truth of an industry fraught with loopholes, complacency an d greed; that allows corrupt regimes to kill, maim and displace, but whose deals are often subsidised by the British taxpayer. Hard-hitting, laugh-out -loud funny and extremely unsettling, As Used on the Famous Nelson Mandela is never anything less than compulsive.
