**Content Warning: Graphic and Shocking Language and Subject Matter**
"How much time am I doing?" is a question that Mark Hughes has asked in a couple different contexts. Tragedy + Time Served = Comedy is a storytelling show which shines a light on the path from Mark's dark and grim past of street life, addiction and prison; bringing the introspective and playful tools gleaned from doing standup comedy; never stopping along the way to observe taboos. After all, how can your life be taboo?

Tragedy + Time Served = Comedy

Tragedy + Time Served = Comedy—Red River College

Mark Hughes true life story is crazier and more fascinating than any TV drama could ever be.  This story telling show made me feel every emotion. The very charismatic Hughes made me feel that every word he was saying needed to be heard. The show on the whole made me feel sad, but as soon as the audience would be about to burst into tears, Hughes wins us back with a well timed, off the wall joke. The jokes are guaranteed to offend you at some point. There is no denying the fact that some you will not like but as he explains to us throughout, you have to cope with the horrors of life somehow, and comedy is it for him. Picture it like cards against humanity but with prison! A great show and I can’t wait to see the sequel. DO. NOT. MISS. THIS. SHOW.
