Author, commentator, Australia-phile and one of Britain's most successful stand-ups, Mark Watson returns to Oz with his most personal and critically acclaimed show to date.
In a trademark battle between his sharp wit and bashful insecurity, Mark plays out a series of modern social snarls with the aid of an unusually verbose powerpoint screen.
Mark Watson has repeatedly sold out shows in London, Edinburgh, Montreal and Australia and was named one of the 50 funniest people in Britain by the London Times.
As seen on Spicks and Specks, Rove, Good News Week, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (ABC) and the Melbourne Comedy Festival Gala.
“Woody Allen and William Boyd have a bastard love child and his name is Mark Watson.” Stephen Fry
“Watson’s fast flowing comedy demands attention... Watson is the sort of stand-up comedian that requires sitting on the edge of your seat... sit up straight to ensure you don’t miss a beat of his stream of consciousness style.
...we’re treated to Watson’s thoughts on a variety of subjects, including (this is by no means a comprehensive list) Australia, swearing, masculinity and his obsession with English mentalist Derren Brown. The giggles come from all directions and rarely from the same place twice. *****” Brisbane Times
""Watson's fast flowing comedy demands attention - 4.5 stars""
""this man can see the funny in almost anything""
"the audience is roaring with laughter."
"the jokes come at such a cracking pace you’ll probably be laughing on the way home as your mind battles to catch up."
"f you are looking for a comedy show that is quick witted, relaxed and absolutely hysterical then Mark Watson is definitely the comedian to see."
"Likeable charm at a thousand BPM!"
