News: Mark Watson Completes Epic Comic Relief Show

Mark Watson completed his epic 27 hour gig in aid of Comic Relief late last night at the Pleasance Theatre in north London. He raised £78,257 and donations are still coming in.

The show was peppered with special guests. Early on Gillian Anderson turned up and shaved comedian Tiernan Douieb's back using houmous as shaving foam. Towards the end Miranda Hart and Russell Brand arrived bearing ice creams. 

While onstage Brand addressed the exhausted audience saying: "you are the core of British culture tonight."

Others that turned up included Victoria Coren-Mitchell, Lauren Laverne, Clive Anderson and Emma Freud as well as stalwarts Douieb, Adam Hills, Emma Kennedy, Rufus Hound and Susan Calman.
