Product description

Product Description

For most of us, the French Revolution has been reduced to jokes about Marie-Antoinette, guillotines and the Scarlet Pimpernel. But for Mark Steel, the French Revolution was one of the most inspirational moments in human history - a moment when ordinary people changed the world and became extraordinary. It deserves better jokes than that. In this revolutionary new DVD, Steel banishes stuffiness from history, telling us what happened in France between the storming of the Bastille and the rise of Napoleon, bringing to life the people who made them happen. Mark Steel has been doing stand up comedy since he was a boy, and is a noted author and columnist. When he is not touring, he is broadcasting TV and Radio shows to the nation, always employing his unique humour and intelligent dissection of human society. VIVE LA REVOLUTION is an uproariously serious work of history - brilliantly funny and insightful, it puts the peculiarity of individual people back at the centre of the story. ''Steel is bolshy, beligerent and bloody hilarious.'' Francis Wheen

Review

Steel mixes jokes and facts brilliantly --The Times

If the revolution was to be led by Mark Steel, it might not be such a terrible idea. The trouble is that his sense of humour is so good he'd be shot in the first week. --John O'Farrell

Smart, comic non-fiction is clearly the future --The Observer
