Edinburgh Festival Fringe - I'm Not Here
Mark Watson returns with the follow-up show to his highly celebrated and successful Flaws. A seemingly minor problem at an airport is the starting point for a spiralling examination of identity in the digital age. But with an enormous number of jokes, luckily, as well as Watson's customary flailing about, chaotic audience interactions and all sorts of other fun.
In short: if you like comedy, but you don't come and see this, you're acting very oddly.
Suitable for ages 14 and above.
A former Cambridge Footlighter, Mark Watson first made an impact on the comedy circuit in 2002 when he won the Daily Telegraph Open Mic competition and was a runner-up in So You Think You're Funny? He has become known for his Edinburgh shows (2005's 50 Years Before Death And The Awful Prospect Of Enternity was nominated for the Perrier) and his gruelling shows that last more than 24 hours. Perrier's successor, the if.comeddies, awarded the panel award for best capturing the spirit of the fringe, in 2007. Watson won the Chortle award winner for innovation in 2005, when he was also nominated for best breakthrough act, and was nominated for best compere in 2007. He is also a novelist, with his debut Bullet Points, published in 2003; has written for TV and in 2007 landed his first radio series, Mark Watson Makes The World Substantially Better.
