Mark Thomas Political Comedy
Mark Thomas is a political comedian and he reveals, in a stand up show, the inside story on how he upset the U.S secret service by putting a bounty on the life of President G.W Bush. Mark also displays how he legally obtained police surveillance images of himself. Find out why the funny man was forced to sing for his life underneath a busload of East London arms dealers. Dodge wildly as he takes potshots at foxhunters, advertisers, and a host of multi-national corporations. And finally find out why all U.S presidents are either Pepsi lovers or Coca Cola dribblers. The war on 'Terror', ID cards, animal rights, Scottish Politicians and just about everything gets a look in during this inspired comedy.

This film is released via VODO under a Creative Commons Non-Commerical No-Derivs Attribution License. The filmmaker does not permit remixes but would like the work to be shared freely for non-commercial purposes.
VODO is founded by Jamie King, one of the figures behind STEAL THIS FILM (stealthisfilm.com
). VODO brings filmmakers together with the distribution power of the filesharing community. It aims to offer fresh, quality films on a free-to-share basis, promoted and distributed through a coalition of filesharing partners that includes big names like The Pirate Bay, Mininova, Miro, TorrentFreak, Isohunt, Plube, OneDDL Vuze and and Frostwire, amongst many others.
Together, the filesharing community has a distribution capacity that rivals and even exceeds that of the mainstream media, says Jamie King. VODO aims to leverage that power for the benefit of filmmakers and other creators. By sharing films freely through the most popular and fastest growing filesharing sites, were building audiences in the hundreds of thousands for artists. That has material value for these filmmakers, through raised profile, donations and marketing. Its a win-win situation and its the future of distributing media after copyright.
Followers of release groups like aXXo will be familiar with the model. But VODO is a release group with a twist. Not only are artists voluntarily sharing: downloaders can choose to make voluntary
donations to creators. VODO lets creators manage their own donation links, with all donations going directly to the filmmaker. Regular supporters of the VODO project will receive access to all the films being considered for release.
VODO aims to release at least one film per month during the rest of 2009 and 2010. Forthcoming titles include the premier of In Guantanamo, a documentary by first-time director David Miller that provides unprecedented access to the Guantanmo prison camps - but King says that fiction titles, animation and shorts will also be on the distribution list. During 2010 VODO will build out a series of revenue opportunities for its creators, with the free-to-share model
at their core, he explains.
