How easy is it to become famous?

Award winning writer Mark Whiteley has tried almost everything – including lying to John Peel about being a burglar, selling the first performance of a play on eBay and emigrating to Poland! Now he’s touring the country, telling the truth about his fame, or lack of it. This comedy charts Mark’s attempts to crack the secret of celebrity, and his brushes with Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan.

Written and performed by Mark Whiteley When Will I Be Famous? follows in the footsteps of past hits Poles Apart, Thick as Thieves and Coast to Coast, bringing together Hard Graft’s unique blend of entertaining comedy storytelling.

If you like song, dance and celebrity guests you’ll love When Will I be Famous.
