Mark Watson This Can't Be It (United Kingdom)

Melbourne International Comedy Festival proudly presents

Mark Watson This Can't Be It (UK)

Back in his favourite city, Mark Watson – at 40 – is halfway through his life, if he's lucky. That life is in the best shape it's been for a long time... but one problem remains, and it really is a huge one.

Spiritual enquiry meets high-octane observational comedy as the still very skinny Brit attempts to cram a year of pathological overthinking into just under an hour's stand-up. He'll tackle the huge problem. It's worth arriving a little early.

‘A master at letting us in on his vulnerability... delightfully deft mixture of low-key happenings and high-end bants. ★★★★' The Times (UK)

‘Quite unlike anything else I’ve seen in almost 20 years of covering the Fringe... witty, warm, perfectly judged. ★★★★★'  The Telegraph (UK)

Mark Watson's also on tour around the country! Find out where he's headed on our tours page.

Suitable for audiences 16+
