Multi-award winning comedy star Mark Watson appears under the IF:FEST umbrella this Sunday night (July 17) with the highly anticipated follow-up to his hugely successful show Flaws.
This date is part of an incredible 69-date tour with his new show I’m Not Here.
A seemingly minor problem at an airport forms the starting point of the show, which spirals into an examination of identity in the digital age and a search for meaning in our lives; luckily with an enormous number of jokes, as well as Watson’s customary flailing, chaotic audience interactions and all sorts of other fun.
Mark is one of the most decorated performers on the UK comedy scene and has tucked away an enormous amount of 'telly' stuff with shows including Mock the Week, Would I Lie To You, Have I Got News for You and Argumental.
He has performed stand-up on BBC 1’s Live At The Apollo, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and Channel 4’s Comedy Gala.
There's a good dose of radio stuff to his body of work too, and a number of novels; Hotel Alpha, Bullet Points, A Light-hearted Look At Murder, Eleven and The Knot. Following his efforts to halve his carbon footprint, he also wrote the book Crap At The Environment.
'In short: if you like comedy, but you don’t come and see this, you’re acting very oddly,' say those who know best.
