Mark is currently touring the UK with his brand new live show I’m Not Here, a seemingly minor problem at an airport is the starting point for a spiralling examination of identity in the digital age and search for meaning in our lives. With an enormous number of jokes, as well as Watson’s customary flailing, chaotic audience interactions and all sorts of other fun.
Supporting Mark on the night will be award winning comedians Alun Cochrane and Ava Vidal who have both appeared on ‘Live at the Apollo’ as well as a variety of TV shows and newcomers Elf Lyons and Scott Gibson are tipped for big things in 2017.
