Profile:
Mark Banks recently celebrated 20 years as a one-man entertainer.
Mark originally started in the performing arts at the age of 11 when uniquely, he was able to balance an entire Zulu rondavel, and its contents on his chin, while singing I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing by the then-New Seekers.

In 1985 he entered the Grahamstown Festival Eistedford and came 71st out of an outstanding lot of entries with his first one man show Stars of South Africa.

When Mark is not busy entertaining as a Comedian, Master of Ceremonies, Satirist and Satire related duties involving fun things, he has moonlighted with a guest spot on Safm’s Big Big Brunch show, BBC World Service Weather Report and occasionally helps out with Port Elizabeth’s Radio Algoa 'Memories are Made of This' – old folk’s nostalgia request programme.

Mark Banks represented South Africa at the 'Just for Laughs' Comedy Festival in Montreal in 1996 where he was awarded absolutely nothing as no awards are given at this prestigious event. It’s not that sort of “do”.

Banks has always been a very humble and self-deprecating member of the show business firmament. Among his achievements, Banks wrote the screenplay for 'The English Patient', staged two complete touring ice shows in Europe, and hand carved a life style statue of Celine Dion for the Durban City Hall steps in record time.
