By Mark Thomas

With Mark Thomas


In this comedy of betrayal, award-winning UK comedian Mark Thomas tells the true story of how he discovered a good friend and fellow activist was actually a mole sent by Britain's biggest arms manufacturer, BAE Systems, to spy on the comedian. Using interviews from friends, colleagues, activists, and journalists, Cuckooed is a personal and timely tale on the impact of betrayal, unearthing what it means to be spied upon by a corporation under the sanction of the state.
