Video: New Game No More Jockeys From Mark Watson, Alex Horne, Tim Key

On each turn, players name a person plus a category they fall under. That person and category are then eliminated, and subsequent people must not fall under that category. As more categories are added it gets harder, and eventually impossible, to name anyone new.

See how well you can do...

Edinburgh Fringe Preview: Mark Watson

I’m not quite sure why Mark Watson isn’t a bigger star. He is a classic, nervy, neurotic stand-up enraged by life's little things and also a master improvisor who is great at spontaneous crowd banter, sometimes doing it while standing in the crowd himself. Watson does like to shake things up a bit in his live shows. Apart from his now legendary marathon sets, he often pops up in the stalls. It’s not intimidating or the kind of thing to make your bum going all tight when he approaches. Watson is friendly and welcoming.
