A review of Howard Marks’ performance at the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, for The Linc.
On Wednesday, October 20th one of the biggest drug smugglers in the world came to Lincoln. Now retired from his former life as a drugs baron, Howard Marks brought his stand-up show to the LPAC.
Having previously worked with the IRA and the Mafia, Marks is definitely one for stories. He once reportedly controlled 10% of the entire world’s hashish distribution, which he seemed most proud of.
The audience was made up of primarily students which isn’t too surprising given the subject of Marks’ life. He too was once a student, at Oxford University, achieving a degree in nuclear physics and post-graduate qualifications in philosophy.
